Hitting the stage in fall 2019, Tina has already been doing well in London, opening to sold-out houses since its April premiere. The production follows Turner’s storied career through her humble beginnings as Anna-Mae Bullock growing up in Nutbush, Tennesse to becoming one of the world’s most prominent forces in music.
“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,” Turner said in a statement.
The 78-year-old musician will also be releasing a book, My Love Story: A Memoir later this year. This will be Turner’s second memoir. Her first was released 32 years ago in 1986 and titled I, Tina.
Cast in the lead role is Tony-nominated actress Adrienne Warren. Dates and venue for TINA will be announced later in the year.
