Tina: The Tina Turner Musical
Tickets are on sale now for the Broadway premiere of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City!
Tina became a critical success and box office smash when it officially opened its world premiere production at London's Aldwych Theatre on April 17, 2018, following previews from March 21. Ever since then, devoted fans and theatregoers alike have travelled from all over the world to see Tina's story being told on the West End stage and to relive all her iconic hits from her early days with the Ike & Tina Turner Revue to her solo career as a global superstar. Now, New York audiences get the opportunity to experience this incredible story of a woman and a warrior defying the odds and breaking free to stand on her own two feet as one of the music industry's true icons.
Featuring perhaps some of the greatest pop and rock 'n' roll songs ever written, from "River Deep Mountain High" and "Proud Mary" to "Private Dancer" and "What's Love Got to Do With It?," it could be argued that Tina is simply "The Best" jukebox musical Broadway has to offer!
Reprising her critically acclaimed and Olivier-nominated performance in the titular role from the West End production is Adrienne Warren, who previously earned a Tony Award nomination on this side of the pond for her turn in Shuffle Along opposite Audra McDonald in 2016. Adrienne's interpretation of Tina has solidified her status as a bona fide shooting star of the stage and with the blessing of Tina Turner herself, who has also worked closely with book writer Katori Hall and director Phyllida Lloyd since the show's conception, Adrienne could have no greater seal of approval.

We’ve decided to launch a new feature here at the New York Theatre Guide to take advantage of our special relationship with our London Theatre Guide sister site. It goes by the name of “5 Questions from Over the Pond” and it gives actors currently appearing in the West End and Broadway the opportunity to ask each other five questions of their own choosing about their respective shows, characters and anything else they might be curious about when it comes to living and working on the other side of the Atlantic.
