The Show

Tina the Musical celebrates the outstanding and acclaimed career of Tina Turner, winner of 11 Grammy Awards, and includes numerous iconic hit songs ‘River Deep – Mountain High’, ‘Proud Mary’, ‘Nutbush City Limits’, and ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It’ which has earned her the title of the Queen of Rock and Roll.

The musical follows Tina’s story from her beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee through a blossoming musical career which pushed the boundaries of gender and race, and a fruitful but turbulent marriage to Ike Turner.

Tina the Musical opened at the West End’s Aldwych Theatre on 21st March 2018, which marked its world premiere.
