When the show opened in London, The Times raved, "A raw musical triumph. This show has heart, soul, and more than a bit of rock'n'roll." The Guardian hailed Tina - The Tina Turner Musical as "a celebration of triumph over adversity. This is as good as it gets!" The Telegraph said, "this joyful, lungs-bursting show is simply the best" and BBC News hailed Warren as "a 24-carat, all singing, all dancing, bona fide star."
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and written by Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, choreography is by Anthony Van Laast, with set and costume designs by Mark Thompson, musical supervision, additional music and arrangements by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Nevin Steinberg, projection design by Jeff Sugg, and orchestrations by Ethan Popp.
From humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her transformation into the global Queen of Rock 'n' Roll, Tina Turner didn't just break the rules, she rewrote them. This new stage musical, presented in association with Tina Turner herself, reveals the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race.
The album features Tony and Olivier Award nominee Adrienne Warren, who stars on Broadway as Tina Turner, in addition to London cast members Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Jenny Fitzpatrick, Madeline Appiah, Lorna Gayle, Tom Godwin, Francesca Jackson, Natey Jones, Ryan O'Connell, Jason Langley, and Claudia Elie. The ensemble includes Edward Bourne, Tsemaye Bob-Egbe, Pérola Congo, Keisher Downie, Kit Esuruoso, Jammy Kasongo, Sia Kiwa, Jason Langley, Kayleigh McKnight, Baker Musaka, Derek Aidoo, Gavin Alex, Candace Frubert, Jemma Geanaus, and Hannah Jay-Allan.
