Date: 23 August 2012
Production photos are out for the West End run of Tina Turner musical Soul Sister, which opens tonight (23 August 2012, previews from 20 August) at the Savoy Theatre.
Emi Wokoma and Chris Tummings reprise their roles as Ike and Tina Turner from the original run at the Hackney Empire in a show which charts their tumultuous relationship across the decades, woven through with hits such as "What's Love Got to Do with It", "Private Dancer", "River Deep Mountain High" and of course "Simply The Best."
Soul Sister runs until 29 September.
