The Drifters Girl – Beverley Knight is back!

The Drifters always were and remain a stunningly good doo-wop and R&B vocal group. Thanks to a run of well-loved iconic chart hits the Drifters became a household name, making songs like Save The Last Dance For Me, Under The Boardwalk, Kissin’ In The Back Row Of The Movies, Stand By Me, Come On Over To My Place and Saturday Night At The Movies living legends. This is the story of their amazing female manager Faye Treadwell, the first every black female music producer and a woman on a mission.

Beverley Knight, who stars as Faye, is herself the proud creator of a host of brilliant smash hit albums. They've all scored high as chart toppers, making her one of the UK's best and best-loved soul singers. She's joined by Adam J Bernard, Tarinn Callender, Matt Henry and Tosh Wanogho-Maud, who play The Drifters themselves to absolute perfection.

What's the story behind The drifters Girl?

Faye Treadwell spent thirty years transforming The Drifters into a global phenomenon. This magical true story of a musical follows her efforts as she refuses to give up on the band she adores. She succeeded, and thanks to her the world is rich in Drifters songs, which bring back brilliant memories for millions and are still played at wedding discos and soul events around the world. This is the story of The Drifters Girl.

About The Drifters Girl

After the death of her husband George Treadwell in 1967, Faye bought out his business partners and began managing the band on her own. It was her determination that brought them to London during the 1970s. In 2006 she finally won a long, difficult legal battle to control the band's trademark. She lived in London for more than three decades, died in 2011, and is still sadly missed. What a lady, what a show, what a brilliant West End experience!
