Absolutely brilliant performance by Beverley Knight & all the cast. The singing was just wonderful, didn’t want it to end. Understandably due to COVID restrictions there was no encore ….highly recommend, a fantastic treat.

5.0 star rating Scott from South Shields


Went to see this at Newcastle Theatre Royal. Great evening and the performance had the audience on their feet and dancing in the aisles. Cracking songs, fascinating story and lots of humour. All the cast were spot on. We all left elated.

The Drifters are well known but their story isn’t. There would be no Drifters without the dedication of their manager Faye Treadwell. The male singers play many parts in this toe tapping gem of a show but the star is Miss Beverley Knight. When she sings “Harlem Child”, it’s pure electricity.

5.0 star rating Jim Healy from Stock , Essex


The story of the Drifters and their female manager is told here using the iconic soundtrack of their many fab hits. The four actors have so much charisma and work their socks off playing multiple parts as well as singing and dancing throughout the show. Beverley Knight plays her part well, although a bit too heavy with the American accent making her difficult to understand,but as always her singing is superb. All the hits are included and it’s a very slick and entertaining production (although a longer encore wouldn’t go amiss). The cast are outstanding and you cannot fail to enjoy the music. Highly recommended.

Great show! The singing was exceptional! Beverley Knight on form. Lovely small theatre which drew you into the story. The cast is limited but it didn’t matter! Just go and enjoy!

5.0 star rating LIssy B from London, England


Felt very lucky to have visited the show on opening weekend in London. The performance from all the cast was absolutely first class and Beverly Knight's vocals were incredible. Also Adam J Bernard as George Treadwell was particularly strong. We were in tears over and over again with the emotional performances, especially as we got sucked into the story. But this is feel good show first and foremost, and a must for Drifters fans. I took my parents as a pre-christmas gift and we were all singing along. We have seen the Drifters themselves, back in the day with the Johnny Moore line up - these guys here should feel proud, they really do the vocals justice. My one negative for the show - the audience - signs everywhere saying keep your face masks on, hardly any one did. Nimax Theatre should enforce this for people's safety (especially with a lot of OAPs in audience). But all in all FABULOUS and my parents are already booked to go back!!!

Simply the best show I’ve seen in a long time! Beverley & the boys were just phenomenal! Some very clever set useage & the cast work incredibly hard with multiple, but brilliant characters. If you love The Drifters, you’ll love this! We enjoyed it so much we’ve just booked again!!!!
