Immortalising the courageous life of Aretha Franklin, ‘Respect’ is a show charting the soul singer’s 50-year career. Off the back of a tour of the USA, the show recreates the story of how a girl from Memphis went on to sell 75 million albums worldwide and become a powerful figure for feminism and civil rights.

Angie Narayan plays the role of Aretha. The ARIA chart-topping artist continues to wow audiences with her soulful singing and embodies the story of Aretha’s life of love, tragedy, and triumph. Expect all your favourite hits like ‘Natural Woman’, ‘Say A Little Prayer’, ‘I Knew You Were Waiting for Me’, ‘Son of a Preacher Man’, ‘Chain of Fools’, and more.

With many laugh-out-loud moments, Respect will have you getting up and out of your seat to dance.
