De Tina Turner Musical (Utrecht) (2020)

TINA - The Tina Turner Musical

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. One year later on December 16, Tina was in London for the first workshop presentation of the show. In 2017, at the launch party in October, Tina announced that Adrienne Warren will be playing the role of Tina Turner. To promote the musical, she was also guest at the Jonathan Ross tv show on October 28 with her first full length interview in years. The musical received it's world premiere on April 17, 2018 at London’s Aldwych Theatre, attended by Tina Turner together with her husband Erwin and many celebrities. It subsequently has broken all box office records in the West End. 

Nyassa Alberta first played the role of Tina in the German version of the musical, moved to the Netherlands to play this role in the Dutch version at the Beatrix Theater in Utrecht. The musical premiered on February 09, 2020, but unfortunately without the attandance of Tina herself.
