Tina – The Tina Turner Musical

From humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her transformation into the global Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Tina Turner didn’t just break the rules, she rewrote them. This new stage musical, presented in association with Tina Turner herself, reveals the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race. We have best priced tickets in the Dress Circle for this fabulous show. An optional dinner is offered before the show.

One of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, Tina Turner has won 11 Grammy Awards and her live shows have been seen by millions, with more concert tickets sold than any other solo performer in music history.

Featuring her much-loved songs, TINA, The Tina Turner Musical is written by Olivier Award-winning playwright Katori Hall and directed by the internationally acclaimed Phyllida Lloyd. The world premiere is opening at London’s Aldwych Theatre this Spring!

On the news, Tina Turner said: “I am so excited to be bringing my musical to the West End! Tina Turner & Phyllida LloydLondon is a place that means so much to me and had such a big impact on my music and my life. Returning now to tell my full story, in the city I love, feels like an important chapter and is truly exciting.”

The production will be directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia!, Donmar’s Shakespeare Trilogy), with choreography by Anthony van Laast, set and costume designs are by Mark Thompson, musical supervision by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Nevin Steinberg and orchestrations by Ethan Popp. Casting is to be announced in due course.

Rock’n’roll legend Turner’s career has spanned over half a century. As one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, her hits include “What’s Love Got To Do With It”, “River Deep – Mountain High” and “Proud Mary”.

Casting

Adrienne Warren will make her West End stage debut as Tina. Her most recent theatre credit was in Shuffle Along at the Music Box Theatre on Broadway, for which she received a Tony nomination. Her other US theatre credits include Bring it On the Musical at St. James Theatre, Dreamgirls at the Apollo Theatre, which was followed by a National Tour, and The Wiz at Encores City Centre.

Warren commented: “Growing up watching Tina, I knew how to shake my hips before I could tie my shoes! I am so grateful to our creative team and producers for entrusting me with this responsibility.  I say responsibility, because I am a Tina Turner fan first. I am elated, honoured and humbled.  Meeting and working with Tina is and will always be one of the great moments of my life.”

At the official launch event, Tina Turner said: “It has been my joy to introduce Adrienne today. From the moment I met her at our last workshop I saw her exceptional talent. Playing this role will require immense physical and emotional commitment, and bravery too. We are thrilled to have found Adrienne, and I very much look forward to spending more time together and developing a special friendship I know will grow even stronger as we prepare the production for the Aldwych Theatre. We can’t wait to welcome her to the show.”

We have top priced tickets in the Dress Circle for the 7.30pm performance of this wonderful show.

The cost of this event will include luxury return coach transport to London, your ticket for the theatre and, of course, treats.
