It Takes Two, an adaptation of the original concept by Rod Stewart and Tina Turner, is coming to Sutherland Entertainment Centre on Saturday 22 July.
The show combines the talents of Cookie Watkins as ‘Tina Turner’ and Rob Caudill as ‘Rod Stewart’. Their accomplished performances ensure an exhilarating and captivating experience providing lasting memories for audiences.
Cookie Watkins brings more than a celebrity impersonation to her performance of Tina Turner. Music has been Cookie’s mainstay since Duke Ellington brought her onstage to warble out a few tunes at the ripe age of fourteen. Cookie admits to being highly influenced by R&B legends like Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Bobby Womack and the legend she so enthusiastically tributes, Tina Turner.
Cookie has also been given the tick of approval by the star herself – Tina Turner, who said: “She not only sounds like me, She looks like me”.
With the addition of Rob Caudill’s dynamic performance as Rod Stewart, who also bears an uncanny likeness to the legendary performer provides an experience like no other.
Rob replicates the energy and vocal styling of Rod Stewart to perfection. Originally from Memphis, Rob made his mark as an accomplished recording artist vocalist and musician and sometime later, responded to the constant remarks that he had a remarkable resemblance to Rod Stewart.
“We’re thrilled to have this international production of some legendary musical performers available for Sutherland Shire audiences to enjoy at Sutherland Entertainment Centre,” said Sutherland Shire Mayor, Carmelo Pesce.
