TINA, a musical based on the life of Tina Turner, is coming to Broadway in fall 2019, according to an announcement made yesterday, October 3rd. The production premiered in London this April, and has continued to play to sold-out houses.
The musical follows the story of Turner (played by Tony-nominated actress Adrienne Warren) triumphing over adversity as she rises from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s most successful singers.
Tina herself had a hand in the presentation, saying, “Bringing this musical to life on stage and working with this team has meant so much to me, I feel that it is in many ways a culmination of my career… Now, the bright lights of Broadway are calling, and I’m very excited to share this beautiful show with New York audiences next year.”
Performance dates, and the venue for the Broadway TINA will be announced at a later date.
