What is The Drifters Girl about?
The Drifters were certainly one of the world’s greatest vocal groups. Faye Treadwell was their manager and she wasn’t going to be satisfied until they were a global force to be reckoned with, no matter what. Alongside her husband George Treadwell, she would spend a large part of her life working to preserve the musical legacy she has created.
In The Drifters Girl, the true story of the first-ever African American female music manager out of the shadows. Featuring some of the most recognisable and classic songs in history, The Drifters Girl follows Faye on her 3-decade long fight to protect and promote the group that she loved.
There were incredible highs spanning the years including sold-out tours and hit records but there were also unbelievable lows comprised of battles fought in court and personal tragedies.

The Drifters Girl starring Beverley Knight postponed to 2021
The eagerly anticipated production of The Drifters Girl has been postponed to next year. The news has been announced by the show's producers Michael Harrison and David Ian. After Beverley Knight's pilot performance at the London Palladium last month, hopes were high that the show would still go on this autumn. Unfortunately, that is not the case as new dates for the musical have now been officially confirmed. Ticketholders to the run scheduled this autumn will be automatically moved to corresponding dates next year to ensure they will not lose their seats.

PHOTO FLASH: Beverley Knight performs for Andrew Lloyd Webber's socially distanced pilot show at the London Palladium
New photos have been released of yesterday's London Palladium pilot show photographed by Andy Paradise of Paradise Photo. The pilot, which was the first-ever socially distanced West End show and was meant to test the safety of socially distanced theatrical performances, featured an introduction by Andrew Lloyd Webber followed by a show-stopping, concert-style performance from the iconic singer and West End actress Beverley Knight, star of the upcoming musical The Drifters Girl.
The venue followed stringent safety and hygiene measures including one-way-systems, anti-viral misting machines, temperature checks, and more. Knight performed a two-hour medley of songs to an audience of just over 500, which was significantly reduced from the venue's maximum capacity of 2000.
At the start of the concert, Andrew Lloyd Webber took to stage to call on the UK Government to set a date for non-socially distanced performances to return. Despite the 1st of August being the projected return date for indoor performances, many major West End and UK theatre shows and venues will not be able to hold socially distanced performances, as it will be economically unviable.
Lloyd Webber said: "What we need badly is a date for reopening. Everyone understands that a spike in the virus could mean a delay, but we need a target."
