TINA, a musical based on the life of Tina Turner, is coming to Broadway in the fall of 2019. TINA premiered in London this April, and has continued to play to sold-out houses. The musical follows Tina Turner, as she rises from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s most successful singers. Musical number include “Private Dancer,” ”River Deep, Mountain High,” ”Better Be Good to Me” and “Proud Mary.”
In a press statement, Tina said, “Bringing this musical to life on stage and working with this team has meant so much to me, I feel that it is in many ways a culmination of my career. London audiences have been and continue to be extraordinary. Now, the bright lights of Broadway are calling!”
TINA will continue a recent trend in so called ‘jukebox musical biographies’, a list that also includes the shows “On Your Feet!” and “Jersey Boys.”
Tina Turner will also be releasing an autobiography, My Love Story: A Memoir, later this year.
