Tina Turner Musical Headed For Broadway
TINA, a musical based on the life of Tina Turner, is coming to Broadway in fall 2019, per an Oct. 3 announcement.
TINA premiered in London this April, and has continued to play to sold-out houses. The musical follows Turner triumphing over adversity as she rises from humble beginnings to become one of the world's most successful singers.
The production is presented in association with Turner herself. "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. London audiences have been and continue to be extraordinary. Now, the bright lights of Broadway are calling, and I’m very excited to share this beautiful show with New York audiences next year," she said in a statement.
Turner will also be releasing an autobiography, My Love Story: A Memoir, later this year. My Love Story will be the rock n' roll icon's second memoir, following-up to her 1986 book I, Tina.
Turner is currently played by Tony-nominated actress Adrienne Warren. Casting, performance dates, and the venue for the BroadwayTINA will be announced at a later date.
