Theatre REVIEW: The Drifters Girl - ★★★

Nominated for Best New Musical at the 2022 Olivier Awards, this smash-hit show has a phenomenal soundtrack packed full of iconic Drifters hits including Saturday Night At The Movies, Save The Last Dance For Me and Stand By Me.

Discover the remarkable story of the Drifters and the truth about the woman who made them. From the highs of hit records to the lows of legal battles and personal tragedy, Faye Treadwell is the legendary manager of The Drifters who refused to give up on the group she loved.

Carly Mercedes Dyer (Six the Musical, Anything Goes) will play music industry change-maker, Faye Treadwell. She will star alongside Ashford Campbell (The X Factor), Miles Anthony Daley (Tina Turner: The Musical, Choir of Man), Tarik Frimpong (The Wiz, Aladdin) and Daniel Haswell.

Thirty years, and hundreds of hit songs later, there is no doubt that Faye Treadwell was and always will be, The Drifters Girl.



Edinburgh Playhouse - until Saturday 4th May - Part of UK Tour

"All the favourite Drifters songs. Singing excellent. Performances were incredible and certainly put on a show! Would recommend if you fancy a trip down memory land and to hear some fantastic vocals."
