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. TINA - The Tina Turner 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 musical was basically the idea of Tina's husband Erwin Bach and the project began in 2015, as Tina first met the Dutch producer Joop van den Ende in The Netherlands. It received it's world premiere on April 17, 2018 at London’s Aldwych Theatre, with Adrienne Warren playing the role of Tina Turner. It subsequently has broken all box office records in the West End. One year later, it opened also in Hamburg, Germany and in November 2019 Adrienne Warren recreated her celebrated performance in New York on Broadway. The next step was the opening in Utrecht, Netherlands at the beginning of 2020 and now the show will also arrive to Spain, to the Teatro Coliseum in Madrid on October 01.
