Soul Sister, the sell out musical that debuted at the Hackney Empire is now playing at the Savoy for a limited time only.
Soul Sister is the tumultuous tale of Ike and Tina Turner that follows the complexities of their relationship and their rise to fame during 1960’s and 1970’s America; as their marriage failed their careers thrived. A passionate story of highs and lows, sadness and glory, this show is all heart and soul.
Tina Turner was once known as Annie Mae Bullock before Ike Turner changed her name and helped to reinvent her from the little known, young, husky voiced girl into the internationally acclaimed super star she is today. Winner of 9 Grammy awards and inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame, her career spans over fifty years and her unmistakable high-octane dance moves are known the world over.
Alongside Chris Tummings (The Harder They Come), in the role of Ike, Emi Wokoma (Hairspray, Little Shop of Horrors, Porgy and Bess) takes the lead role and does the Tina Turner teeter in this high-energy rock and roll show.
Leap about in your seats to a whole bundle of Tina Turner classics, including Steamy Windows, Private Dancer, River Deep Mountain High, What’s Love Got To Do With It, Simply The Best and many more.
Soul Sister was adapted for stage by John Miller and Pete Brooks, choreographed by Jason Pennycooke and directed by Pete Brooks.
