Stage Entertainment confirms that TINA, a new musical based on the life of legendary artist Tina Turner, will have its Broadway premiere in the Fall of 2019 at a theatre to be announced. Performances dates, casting and all further details will be announced in the coming months.
Tina Turner 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, and I’m very excited to share this beautiful show with New York audiences next year.”
Tali Pelman, Producer and Group Creative Managing Director at Stage Entertainment, said, “I am thrilled that we are finally able to announce that TINA will open on Broadway next Fall. West End audiences have fallen in love with the show, and working with the incomparable Tina Turner has been an exceptional experience. She has made it her mission to tell her story with raw honesty and grit. She is an inspiration for all of us. We cannot wait for Broadway audiences to experience the power of TINA.”
TINA received its world premiere in April 2018 at the Aldwych Theatre in London where it continues to play to sold out houses. A new booking period was recently announced in the West End on September 21, 2018 for bookings through July 2019.
A production of TINA will open in Hamburg in 2019.
