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.

ACT ONE begins with a bang in the '60s, taking you back in time where Aretha’s career all began. Introduced to Aretha’s family, you explore her childhood, the church, meeting her Manager/Husband, the Civil Rights Movement, her biggest musical crush!

ACT TWO starts off in the '70s, which was a rather turbulent decade with bombed albums, failed relationships and family tragedy. Moving into the '80s, ‘Sisters are Doin' it for Themselves’, ‘Freeway of Love’, ‘Everyday People’ are just some of the hits guaranteed to have you dancing in your seat!
