Remarkable life story of the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll
Our Review 4 / 5

Tina – The Tina Turner Musical chronicles 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", selling-out tickets to shows in stadiums and arenas across the world. She has since spoken openly about being a victim of domestic abuse and split from Ike in 1976.

Tina - The Tina Turner Musical began previews at the Aldwych Theatre on 21st March 2018, and officially opened on 17th April 2018 in the attendance of Tina Turner. 

The role of Tina Turner was originated 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”.

Tina Turner's story has previously been presented in the film 'What's Love Got to Do with It?' directed by Brian Gibson. Released in 1993 it starred Angela Bassett as Tina Turner and Laurence Fishburne as Ike Turner. The stage musical Soul Sister was devised by John Miller and Pete Brooks and produced by Bill Kenwright and John Miller. It ran at The Hackney Empire in 2012 before transferring to the West End's Savoy Theatre where it was nominated for an Olivier Award. This new musical, however, is the first musical Turner is directly involved with.

Tina - The Tina Turner Musical reviews

"It’s everything you expected, executed well and packs in a few surprises. Simply the Best? If you’re a Tina fan, it’ll definitely be pretty close."
Will Longman, LondonTheatre.co.uk

"Born in the USA, made in England. That’s the thesis of this slickly choreographed, beautifully designed and roof-raisingly well-sung bio-musical about Tina Turner."
Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph (five stars)

"This is a great show that is going to be a hit and its star, Adrienne Warren, is, as someone once sang, simply the best."
Ann Treneman, The Times (four stars)

"[Tina] offers a heady celebration of triumph over adversity and boasts a whirlwind performance by Adrienne Warren that left the audience, though not the star herself, breathless."
Michael Billington, The Guardian (four stars)
