Jukebox musical of the story of Tina Turner, her rise to stardom while facing the odds of age, gender and race, and a malevolent husband filled with violence and rage

Tina: The Tina Turner Musical on Broadway Background

The 1993 Tina Turner movie biopic What's Love Got to Do With It? and the 1996 bestselling memoir I, Tina was all about Ike Turner, his stardom, manipulation and his malevolent violence towards the naive Anna Mae Bullock (who later changed her name to Tina Turner). This jukebox musical on Broadway wants to turn the focus back to Tina Turner herself, instead of it being all about her first husband and manager of 16 years. The show is a celebration of her success in her struggle to make it in a white-man controlled record industry that was often times harsh to a single black woman, despite her undeniable singing talent. The show attempts to condense Turner’s life into three way split of a the "compendium of school of hard knock stories", some broad life brushstrokes and then finishing off with some pivotal turning points that would make Malcolm Gladwell proud.

What’s Tina: The Tina Turner Musical Like?

This jukebox musical is billed as the "untold story" of Tina Turner, but its really nothing new for anyone who has already read the Tina Turner biography or seen the biopic. Over the years fans have seen many versions of this so called "untold story “ but this version attempts to focus on Turner's triumphs rather than the lower parts of her life. This triumphant celebration of the Turner's life comes with the blessings of Tina Turner and the show boasts a whirlwind performance by Adrienne Warren.

Despite that this show contains 23 of Tina Turners most popular and catchy songs that may have long plagued an ear-worm, the show producers make an announcement at the very start of the show that they would prefer that you not to sing along during the show. The show tells the inspiring story about an African American woman (Turner) who was able to overcome great adversity to reach the height of her singing profession. The two lead actors in the show are Adrienne Warren (Tina Turner) and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (Ike Turner). Adrienne's performance is billed as extraordinary as she takes on the character of Tina Turner and appears to "become" her through an immersive acting technique. Warrens singing pulls in the audience and takes then through Turners journey from Nutbush, Tennessee to the world stage and super stardom.

What this Broadway show fails to show is the next stage of Tina Turner's life where she ultimately ditches America in 1995 and spends the rest of her days in Switzerland, in her 30 room mansion overlooking Lake Zurich, speaking German, having tea with George Clooney and then formally giving up her American Citizenship. To add insult to injury, she goes on to take every opportunity to bad-mouth her former homeland, in which she still has so many fans that support her.
