Overview

Phyllida Lloyd directs a West End world premiere of glittering new musical Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, based on the life and backstory of the world’s legendary rock ‘n’ roll performer, Tina Turner. Receiving its London debut at the Aldwych Theatre, the dazzling production charts the star’s rise to fame, featuring a stellar soundtrack of her greatest hits.

Born in 1939 in Nutbush, Tennessee, Tina Turner grew from humble beginnings to transform into the world-famous rock ‘n’ roll Queen. Shooting to fame during the 1960’s, Turner first made her name alongside then-husband and partner Ike Turner, as the duo received huge acclaim for their electric live performances and smash-hit songs such as “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine”.

After their dramatic break-up, she went on to establish an international solo career, delivering countless chart-topping songs and swiping three Grammy Awards for her 1984 album Private Dancer. After going on to receive a further eight Grammys, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.

Tina is presented by Stage Entertainment, Joop van den Ende and Tali Pelman, alongside Tina Turner herself, and sees the story supported by a variety of her popular songs, including “River Deep Mountain High”, “What’s Love Got to Do With It”, “Proud Mary”, “Simply the Best” and more.

Broadway's own Adrienne Warren steps into the shoes of Tina Turner, with credits including Shuffle Along and Bring It On the Musical. Warren is joined by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith as Ike Turner, whose credits include Hamlet and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Further casting includes Madeline Appiah as Zelma Bullock, Lorna Gayle as GG, Tom Godwin as Phil Spector/Terry Britten, Francesca Jackson as Rhonda Graam, Aisha Jawando as Alline Bullock, Natey Jones as Richard Bullock/Raymond Hill, Gerard McCarthy as Erwin Bach and Ryan O'Donnell as Roger Davies.

Nkeki Obi-Melekwe is in place to take over as Tina. An official first performance date has not yet been announced. At this time, Ashley Zhangazha will take over the role of Ike.

Ensemble includes Tsemaye Bob-Egbe, Keisher Downie, Kit Esuruoso, Jammy Kasongo, Sia Kiwa, Jason Langley, Kayleigh McKnight, Baker Mukasa and Tanisha Spring and swings Derek Aidoo, Gavin Alex, Edward Bourne, Candace Furbert, Hannah Jay-Allan and Rodney Vubya.

Jukebox musical veteran Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia!) leads the musical, which is written by Olivier Award-winner Katori Hall (The Mountaintop), with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins. Tina features choreography by Anthony van Laast (Sister Act, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast), design by Mark Thompson, lighting by Bruno Poet and sound by Nevin Steinberg, with orchestrations by Ethan Popp and musical supervision by Nicholas Skilbeck.

One of the world’s best-selling artists, Tina Turner is a household name. Tina brings to life her emotional story, which opened at London’s Aldwych Theatre from 21 March 2018, with an official press night on 17 April 2018. The show continues to play to a packed-out audience.
