Why Watch TINA: The Tina Turner Musical
This project has a large amount of involvement from Tina Turner herself, who at a recent event said that the project brought her out of retirement. The musical was made with her blessing and features many of her best songs. The musical is brought to life by the talented Adrienne Warren, who manages to showcase Tina Turner’s soul and energy in her performance as the star. The show is a must watch for anyone familiar with the book written by Katori Hall, and of course Tina Tuner’s music because it highlights the often-overlooked personal struggles of the artist behind the music.
The story follows the life of Tina Turner, right from her beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, all the way to her relationship with Ike Turner and eventual comeback in her 40s. The musical shows us Tina's tryst with abuse and horror from her husband which finally ended in a divorce, after which she struggled to make it in the industry. The musical highlights her ability to overcome obstacles as she went on to become a solo rock 'n’ roll star.

“As bio-musicals go, this is as good as it gets.”
“The near-impossible expectation is that she doesn’t just ‘play’ Turner, but somehow ‘becomes’ her. Yet that precisely - magically – is what seems to happen.”
"It’s a slam-dunk for every upcoming awards ceremony.”
