Party the night away with the original Soul Sister at the New Wimbledon Theatre this summer.

Nominated for best musical at the 2013 Olivier Awards, Soul Sister the musical is inspired by the music, life and times of Ike and Tina Turner as their careers soared, and marriage crumbled.

Dance your feet off to classics like ‘what’s love got to do with It’, ‘proud Mary’, ‘private dancer’ ‘river deep mountain high’ and, of course, ‘simply the best’.

During a career spanning 50 years Tina Turner has sold 180 million albums and single copies, won nine Grammy awards and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

On starring as Tina Turner Jenny Fitzpatrick says: "Tina Turner has been one of the biggest musical influences in my life, probably since the first time I heard her singing River Deep Mountain High when I was a kid, so it is an absolute dream to play her in Soul Sister."

Wimbledon Guardian:

Jenny’s West End and regional theatre credits include Little Shop of Horror, Our House, The Blues Brothers and Ghost.
