Soul Sisters - theatre......

What an amazing performance at The Regent, Ipswich and great fun sharing it with FriendK. She was my very first friend in Ipswich when we moved here 30 years ago and we used to do everything together, but lives and families take different paths so we get to do very little together these days. This night out was not only her suggestion but she paid for my ticket too as a very early birthday present :-)

Straight from her sensational West End season, the ‘blistering talent’ Emi Wokoma stars in this ‘slick’ new musical inspired by the life and times of Ike and Tina Turner (The Times). Wokoma’s ‘volcanic voice’ has taken London by storm, critics and audiences alike are raving about Emi’s raw energy and dazzling command of Turner’s classic hits (Daily Mail).
Do not miss Wokoma’s star making performance alongside the complete West End cast including Chris Tummings’ triumphant ‘hissably cocksure and sleazy Ike’(The Independent) the ‘exuberant Ikettes’ (Daily Express) and the ‘superb’ on-stage band (Metro).
Soul Sister features; ‘What’s love got to do with it’, ‘Proud Mary’, ’Private Dancer’, ‘River Deep Mountain High’ and of course ‘Simply the Best’ and many more...
The story follows the highs and lows, passions and heartbreak, of Ike and Tina as their careers soared and their marriage crumbled. Full of heart and soul, electrifying chorography, and stunning musical numbers, Soul Sister is sure to have you on your feet, partying the night away.

Fantastic evening and we were all up and dancing by the end!
