Beginning with a chance meeting in St. Louis, the story follows the turbulent marriage and subsequent rise to stardom of Tina and Ike Turner. The electric production transforms 30 years of rock ‘n’ roll history into one exhilarating live performance, charting the notorious career lows and redemptive personal triumphs.
About The Event
Premiering earlier this year at the Hackney Empire, this lavish stage show has now been eminently transferred to the West End’s Savoy Theatre. The production stars Emi Wokoma as Tina Turner, who struts and soars her way through musical numbers such as What’s Love Got to Do With It, and Simply the Best. Chris Tummings completes the fateful pairing as husband Ike Turner, while choreography by Jason Pennycooke adds glamorous energy to proceedings.
Founded in 1881 as a showcase for Gilbert and Sullivan operas, the Strand’s Savoy Theatre has hosted prestigious adaptations from Shakespeare to Fiddler on the Roof. The Grade II listed building was rebuilt and modernised in 1993, and welcomes guest to experience this soulful production during evening and matinee sessions.

While still to be reviewed at The Savoy Theatre, Soul Sister's run at the Hackney Empire earned it a loud and proud 4/5 from critics at The Telegraph and The Evening Standard. Special praise went to the production of the songs and the performance of Emi Wokama as Tina Turner.
Wokoma’s characterisation of the Queen of rock ‘n’ roll is seamless in its mimicry; she’s got the voice and the moves down to a T, but transcends mere Stars in Your Eyes frivolity on account of her convincing ability to tell a story.

Her voice soars to ever greater heights and, delightfully, she has Turner’s stiletto-heeled stomp-dance down perfectly. Choreographer Jason Pennycooke supplies some suitably high-octane routines for her and the hard-working trio of backing singers The Ikettes and there’s classy support from the onstage band.
