RESPECT - The Aretha Franklin Story

Provided by:

Event runs from 2:00 PM to 10:30 PM


The electrifying show RESPECT journeys through Aretha Franklin’s courageous life of love, tragedy and triumph, while showcasing her greatest hits over the last 50 years! Starring Australia’s ‘Soul Mama’, Angie Narayan, RESPECT is a masterful piece of storytelling about family, loyalty and victory, layered with glorious harmonies and sassy repartee! Taking you back in time where it all began in the 1960s, you explore Aretha’s childhood, the church, meeting her first love, the Civil Rights Movement, her musical crush and the profound impact the song RESPECT had on the world! ‘Natural Woman’, Say A Little Prayer’ and ‘Son of a Preacher Man’ are just a taste of Aretha’s classics you can expect! Moving to the 1980s, ‘Sisters are Doin it for Themselves’, ‘Freeway of Love’, ‘Everyday People’ are just some of the hits guaranteed to have you up dancing out of your seat! There is one big surprise near the end of the show that no expects but has people literally in tears! “The show was beyond expectations! We left on such a high!” “Absolutely the closest thing to watching Aretha live!” “BLOODY FANTASTIC!!!”
