Movin' Out is also a jukebox musical that was a big success. I'll skip this one, though. Doesn't sound very good from the reviews.
ROLLING STONE loved the star, if not the show. ROLLING STONE REVIEW - NOVEMBER 7, 2019
Adrienne Warren's A Star is Born turn in TINA has finally arrived!!
Scroll down for another rave for Adrienne.http://www.newnownext.com/tea-leoni-madame-secretary-trans-documentary-man-made/11/2019/
We saw Tina last Saturday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. A few of the songs did feel a bit shoehorned into the story ( e.g., "We Don't Need Another Hero" ), but this makes Summer look like a grade school production.Adrienne Warren is a powerhouse who fires on all cylinders throughout the show, and much of the supporting cast hangs right on her (stiletto) heels. Daniel J. Watts is superb as the love-to-hate-him Svengali, Ike Turner, and Dawnn Lewis gives a strong and emotional performance as Tina's mother. Unfortunately, the blood, sweat, and tears from these actors is let down by those playing Phil Spector (Steven Booth), Roger (Charlie Franklin), and particularly Rhonda (Jessica Rush), who feels like a cartoon character. There is a lot of vocal talent to be enjoyed here, along with some highly authentic choreography. Overall, Tina is a fitting paean to a legend who overcame great adversity to build a solo career as one of rock's most admired female vocalists.Our only regret was purchasing tickets in the mezzanine, which is extremely high and too far forward. We were in the third row of the center section and it felt like we were looking down on the tops of the performers' heads rather than at their faces. We made a mental note to always book the orchestra at the Lunt-Fontanne.
