Tina - The Tina Turner Musical

Tina - The Tina Turner Musical

From humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her transformation into the global Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Tina Turner didn’t just break the rules, she rewrote them. This new stage musical, presented in association with Tina Turner herself, reveals the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race.

Shalamar

Shalamar

Shalamar are one of the most successful soul groups of all time, selling 25 million albums worldwide. Formed in 1976, the band enjoyed their first hit single the following year with the Motown inspired medley 'Uptown Festival'.
The 'underground soul club' hits continued with 'Take That To The Bank' in 1978, followed by 'Right In The Socket' and the infectious ‘The Second Time Around’, which dominated the airwaves through Autumn 1979.
In 1982, the whole world fell under the spell of Shalamar with the release of the ‘Friends’ album (which sold over on million copies in the UK) and in particular, 'A Night to Remember' – although it was not perhaps the song but the image of Jeffrey Daniel performing the 'Moonwalk' live on British Television for the first time on Top of The Pops that stopped a nation in their tracks.
Fast forward 35+ years and the band, still with original members Jeffrey Daniel, Howard Hewitt alongside Solar Records Dick Griffey, daughter Carolyn Griffey continue to thrill audiences all over the world with their stage show. "A Shalamar concert is a giant party" says Jeffrey Daniel, "From the moment we step on stage to the moment we finish the audience becomes part of the show - they’re up on their feet dancing and singing along".

The Aldwych and Strand Theatres where built as a pair on either side of the Waldorf Hotel. The theatre originally had 4 levels of seats, but now only 3 levels are used.

The theatre is associated with "The Aldwych Farces" - a series of farces by Ben Travers which played here from 1925 to 1933 as well as The Royal Shakespeare Company who made the Aldwych Theatre their home from 1960 to 1982 when the company then moved to the Barbican Theatre. More recent productions include a revival of Noel Coward's "Private Lives" with Joan Collins, the West End transfer of the award winning Royal National Theatre's production of JB Priestley's "An Inspector Calls", the critically applauded revival of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (with Diana Rigg and David Suchet) and the critically panned - and short-lived - musical "The Fields of Ambrosia".
