Review: TINA - THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL at Orpheum

There is only one.

Her voice is undeniable. Her fire is unstoppable. Her triumph is unlike any other.

This new musical reveals a comeback story like no other, of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of racism, sexism and ageism to become the global queen of rock 'n' roll. Tina - The Tina Turner Musical is a celebration of resilience and an inspiration of triumph over adversity.

One of the world's best-selling artists of all time, Tina Turner has won 12 Grammy Awards and her live shows have been seen by millions, with more concert tickets sold than any other solo performer in music history.

Review: TINA - THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL at Orpheum

Tina was a hit! This show starts from Tina's early life as Anna Mae Bullock and her struggles with her family. Her parents had a troubled relationship as well as her relationship with her mom. To later on with her managers, Ike Turner, and her sons.

The sets and costumes were vibrant and made you feel like you were back at a concert in the early 70's and 80's. The audience really enjoyed seeing Paris Lewis (Tina) sing her hits and wearing the outfits, the hair, and the dance moves just as Tina did.
