About The Drifters Girl

“London’s new smash-hit. Pure Heaven” Daily Mail

Discover the remarkable story of The Drifters, one of the world’s greatest vocal groups, and the truth about the woman who made them. Beverley Knight stars as Faye Treadwell, the legendary manager of The Drifters, who, alongside her husband, fought for three decades to turn Atlantic Records' hottest vocal group into a global phenomenon.

From the highs of hit records and sell out tours to the lows of legal battles and personal tragedy, The Drifters Girl charts the trailblazing efforts of the world’s first African American, female music manager and how she refused to ever give up on the group she loved. Thirty years, and hundreds of hit songs later, there is no doubt that Faye Treadwell was and always will be, The Drifters Girl.

With an unbelievable soundtrack of some of the most iconic songs in history, including 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, The Drifters Girl has had audiences on their feet night after night!

Tell Me More

The Drifters first entered the music scene in the early 1950s. Originally a backing group, The Drifters found their own success with hits like “Money Honey” and “Adorable”. But, it wasn’t entirely down to the musicians themselves for their own chart-topping hits. Find out more about their manager, Faye Treadwell in The Drifters Girl. Book The Drifters Girl tickets in London on TodayTix.

Faye Treadwell propelled the Drifters to superstardom, but she also made history herself as the first African-American female music manager. It wasn’t always easy for Treadwell though, with her peers belittling her ability. But she’d always be “the” Drifters girl that’d go on to change the history of music forevermore.

Over sixty singers have been a part of the Drifters vocal group. But this jukebox musical will celebrate the livelihood of its most active member, manager Faye Treadwell. So, get ready to listen “Under The Boardwalk” and dance to all your favourite doo-wop tracks at The Drifters Girl in London. Book The Drifters Girl tickets today.
