Interviews: Hit The Theatre meets stars of London's West End stages
In Conversation with Emi Wokoma & Chris Tummings
Looking forward to the show opening?
CT (CHRIS TUMMINGS) - Absolutely looking forward to it. We’ve had a two month break, but we all feel really ready to get it back on stage.
Tell us a little bit about what you’ve done before Soul Sister
EW (EMI WOKOMA) - I played one of the dynamites in Hairspray, but one of my first jobs after leaving Drama School was a UK Tour of Dancing in the Streets. This is my first lead West End role!
Is there a difference between the show from when it was done in Hackney to now?
CT - There will be a difference between the two shows. A few bits have been rewritten, a few tweaks here and there.
What is your favourite Song in the show?
EW - My favourite is definitely, ‘Think it’s gonna work out fine’, because it’s jokey, and cheeky, and it’s at the right point in the show, and you get to see their relationship develop and the kind of banter between them.
How have you both approached the roles of Tina and Ike Turner?
CT - I like to think that we have a natural chemistry together, and we try and bring that chemistry to the roles as well.
Do you think Tina will come see the show?
EW - Well, the show is open to everybody! So by all means, if you’re out there Tina, come along and go for it - but just don’t tell me beforehand!
Who do you think the show is suitable for?
CT - I think Soul Sister is a great girly show, it’s a great woman’s show, but it really appeals to everybody, all age groups, all colours, everybody loves it! We have a five minute concert at the end and they’re all jumping up in the air and dancing. They really enjoy it.
