Why See Tina - The Tina Turner Musical?
Better than all the rest
Biographical musicals are all the rage both on Broadway, and in the West End. The latest to join the glitz of the stage is this phenomenal addition, Tina - The Tina Turner Musical. Based on the life of iconic songstress Tina Turner, this new production boasts Mamma Mia and The Iron Lady director Phyllida Lloyd to helm, with a book by Katori Hall, with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins.
Turner's turbulent rise to fame is the stuff of music legend, with her iconic songs often masking the dramatic goings-on behind the scenes. Her inspiring story was first told in the 1993 made-for-TV movie What's Love Got to Do with It, which followed her rise to fame, and her struggle to break free from her abusive husband and manager Ike Turner. Following an incredible comeback in early 80's, Tina is now considered to be one of music's best-selling artists of all time - the reigning Queen of Rock 'n' Roll, she has garnered 11 Grammy Awards and three Grammy Hall of Fame awards, plus a legion of fans the world over.
Adrienne Warren takes on the role of the iconic Tina Turner. Warren is a Tony nominated power-house whose stage appearances include, Shuffle Along (Tony nominated for featured Actress in a Musical), Bring It On and Dream Girls.
