The Drifters Girl is a classic example of the worst type of jukebox musical – a group effort in failing to tell an interesting story whilst putting on a good show.
Adam J Bernard, Tarinn Callender, Matt Henry and Tosh Wanogho-Maud will play The Drifters in brand new musical The Drifters Girl, also starring Beverley Knight, which tells the remarkable story of one of the world’s greatest vocal groups and the woman who made them. The show begins performances at Newcastle Theatre Royal on 9 October 2021, playing until 23 October, before transferring to London’s Garrick Theatre on 4 November (press night is 25 November).
The Forest Fosse Ballet shows great potential to be developed further into a full series, with a great sense of comedy and many funny relatable characters.

Recorded live at London’s Savoy Theatre, backed by a fourteen piece band, this new recording of the well loved musical, Dreamgirls, gives you a wonderful opportunity to hear some of the finest voices on the West End singing one of the most high energy and belt heavy scores.
In many ways, I don’t deny Dreamgirls the extravagance, it’s good to have a huge rollercoaster blowout of a blockbuster musical every now and then, it helps to balance the slightly more serious-minded ones about suicide and cancer.
