Background

Tina – The Tina Turner Musical will chronicle the life of the rock ‘n’ roll legend who brought us hit songs like “What’s Love Got to Do With It”, “Proud Mary”, “The Best”, ““River Deep Mountain High” and “Better Be Good To Me”.

Tina Turner was born Anna Mae Bullock on 26 November 1939 in Nutbush, Tennessee. She obtained Swiss citizenship in 2013 and currently lives in Küsnacht, Switzerland. She shot to fame in the mid-1950s singing with Ike Turner's Kings of Rhythm, originally under the name "Little Ann." She became Tina Turner in 1960 and began the Ike & Tina Turner Revue with hits such as "River Deep – Mountain High", "Proud Mary" and "Nutbush City Limits". She has since spoken openly about being a victim of domestic abuse and split from Ike in 1976.

Turner will be played in the musical by American actress Adrienne Warren. Warren made her Broadway debut in 2012 when she appeared in the Lin-Manuel Miranda musical Bring It On at the St James Theatre. She then went on to star in Shuffle Along, or, the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed, which saw her nominated for a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. She makes her West End debut in Tina, and was described as an “exceptional talent” when announced by Turner.

Produced by Stage Entertainment, the show will be directed by Mamma Mia director Phyllida Lloyd, and has a book by writer Katori Hall, whose play The Mountaintop about the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr gained notoriety on both sides of the Atlantic. Tina has been in the works for several years, with Turner attending a workshop held in late 2016, where she said: “I am delighted to be able to share our news as we begin the next chapter of our journey. It has been wonderful to collaborate with Katori and Phyllida and to have my story nurtured by such an amazing creative team is thrilling. London has always had a very special place in my heart and it’s wonderful to be back”.
