THE DRIFTERS GIRL

the drifters girl The Drifters Girl is a new musical which tells  the remarkable story of THE DRIFTERS, one of the world’s greatest vocal groups, and the truth about the woman who made them.

Broadway star Felicia Boswell stars as Faye Treadwell, the legendary manager of THE DRIFTERS from 5th July . She was the world's first African American, female music manager and widow of the group's co-founder George Treadwell. Faye continued to manage the band after George's death in 1967 and 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. She will be joined by Tosh Wanogho-Maud (Ben E. King), Tarinn Callender (Johnny Moore), Adam J. Bernard (George Treadwell) and Matt Henry (Clyde McPhatter) Further casting will be announced at a later date.

The Drifters Girl is produced by Michael Harrison and David Ian.with a book by Ed Curtis, based on an idea by Tina Treadwell, and is co-created by Beverley Knight, Adam J Bernard, Tarinn Callender, Matt Henry and Tosh Wanogho-Maud. It will be directed by Jonathan Church, with set design by Anthony Ward, choreography by Karen Bruce, costume design by Fay Fullerton, orchestrations and musical supervision by Chris Egan lighting design by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Tom Marshall and video design by Andrzej Goulding.
