I’m Every Woman - The Chaka Khan Musical will open with a pre-West End engagement in 2024. Details on the I’m Every Woman musical in the West End will be revealed at a later date.

Chaka Khan is an American singer. To date, she’s sold over 100 million albums with hits including “Ain’t Nobody,” “Eye to Eye,” and “I Feel For You.” The Chaka Khan musical will depict her life in the Black Panther party, her early career in funk band Rufus, and her solo ventures.

“London has a very special place in my heart, and I’m honoured that my life and music will be celebrated on a West End stage. Working with such a talented team, producer Adrian Grant, writer Tina Andrews and director Racky Plews, on my life story is a dream come true,” said Khan. Khan will attend London workshops later this year.

Tina Andrews writes I’m Every Woman, with direction by Racky Plews, and production by Adrian Grant. Further casting and a creative team will be announced at a later date.

“I’m thrilled to be producing a theatrical stage musical about the life of Chaka Khan. She has been an icon across many genres and decades, but I grew up in the 80s, and songs such as ‘Ain’t Nobody’ and ‘I Feel For You’ created an everlasting cultural imprint that will form a part of this show, with electric choreography and vocals that blow the roof off,” said Grant.

When is the Chaka Khan musical in the West End?

Details on the Chaka Khan musical, I'm Every Woman, will be announced a later date. Currently, London workshops will take place in November 2023, followed by a pre-West End engagement in 2024.
