Soul Sister @ Hackney Empire

Saw Soul Sister quite some time ago and for some reason I just forgot to write about it. To be honest, I'm not a Tina Turner fan, and I don't know any of her songs (Yep, honest!)... so the musical's probably not as impressive for me as it is for Tina's fans.

It basically tells the story of Tina Turner's life, and focuses quite a lot on her turbulent relationship with her husband. I am quite astonished to know that despite his many affairs, she didn't divorce him - it's kind of 'explained' in the musical but still, I'm puzzled. The leading actress is quite good though she didn't seem to be too ready in the first few songs. It's an okay performance but I don't think it would have an impact on you unless you're a Tina fan.
