The Tina musical 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.
