Soul Sister Feature with Danya Miller

  We were very lucky today here at Radio Verulam as we were graced with the presence of theatre veteran Danya Miller. Her impressive credentials include the Lennon and McCartney musical "All You Need is Love!" which was on in the West End in 2001.

   She came in specially to tell us of her new production "Soul Sister" which is inspired by the life, times and music of Ike and Tina Turner. She's been working on the production with her husband John who originally devised and wrote the show for over 12 months.

  It's both an inspiring and tragic story and focuses on Ike's and Tinas contribution to music. She informed us the show will also hold more of a positive spotlight on their careers rather then their turbelent private lives.  The show will be on from 14th to the 5th May. and features such hits as "Simply the Best", "What's Love Got to Do With It" and "Private Dancer".

  Danya hopes it will well recieved by Tina fans as well as music lovers and even Tina herself (As she has met the songstress herself!). The show features Emi Wokoma as Tina Turner and Chris Tummings as Ike.
  The show only runs for 3 weeks at the Hackney Empire, and later will go on for an national tour and will go on for a transfer to the Westend in 2013! Best get your tickets now! Prices range from £10 - £27.50.
