Discover the truth behind the music at Tina the musicalTina: The Tina Turner Musical is the incredible true story of Tina Turner’s life both on and off stage. Born in 1939 in Nutbush, Tennessee, Tina Turner grew from humble beginnings to into a world-famous, chart-topping superstar. Shooting to fame during the 1960s with her partner Ike Turner, their dramatic break-up lead to Tina embarking on an international solo career. She has since delivered countless chart-topping hits, is a 12-time Grammy Award-winner, has sold more concert tickets than any other solo artist in history and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Although Tina's life and career has been previously dramatised on stage and screen, including in the 1993 film What's Love Got to Do with It? starring Angela Bassett, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is the first to be presented in association with Tina Turner herself. Turner was involved in the early stages of development, attending workshops for the musical and giving the creative team her blessing to adapt her story for the stage. In reference to the show, she stated that, "each night I want audiences to take away from the theatre that you can turn poison into medicine."
What makes Tina the musical a hit?Tina has a hugely talented creative team behind it, which has driven the jukebox musical to best-seller status in London. The book is written by Olivier Award-winning US playwright Katori Hall, who like Tina Turner hails from Tennessee. Phyllida Lloyd, who struck gold with runaway hit musical Mamma Mia! in the West End, directs the show.
With stunning choreography by Anthony Van Laast and costumes, hair and makeup by Mark Thompson and Campbell Young, this big-budget musical expertly recreates Tina's most memorable moments - culminating in her extraordinary '80s era which saw her dominate the charts - and completely transports audiences into her life both in and out of the spotlight.
Tina has proven a huge success since its world premiere at the Aldywch Theatre in 2018. It was nominated for three Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith won Best Actor in a Musical for his portrayal of Ike Turner. A Broadway production soon followed in November 2019, with the show picking up 12 Tony Award nominations. Tina the musical continues to be a popular choice for theatregoers on both sides of the Atlantic, and it has also premiered in Utrecht in the Netherlands and Hamburg in Germany.
