Preview by Jack Foley

THE producers of Tina – The Tina Turner Musical have announced a new release of tickets for the hit musical based on the life of legendary artist Tina Turner.

Over 200,000 new tickets will go on public sale at noon on Friday, January 25, 2019, taking bookings at the Aldwych Theatre to Saturday, December 21, 2019.

The producers are also delighted to announce the upcoming recording of the original cast album, details of which will be released shortly.

Tina Turner said: “It is a privilege to have our show playing to full houses here in London night after night. I’m so looking forward to the release of our cast album, so we can share the music and also the way the songs tell my story.

“This was my biggest surprise in the making of the musical – I never realised my songs captured the life I was living. I’m turning 80 this year and it’s a time for looking back. I’ve loved working with my producers, Phyllida, Katori, our creative team and of course this incredible cast led by Adrienne and Kobna. Together they found the love, and I am grateful.”

A new cast, which will be announced shortly, will take the production into its second year in the West End from March 19, 2019.

Prior to that, however, it has also been confirmed that Adrienne Warren and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith will continue in the roles of Tina and Ike Turner until April 13, 2019.

Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and written by Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, Tina – The Tina Turner Musical is choreographed by Anthony van Laast, with set and costume designs by Mark Thompson, musical supervision by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Nevin Steinberg, projection design by Jeff Sugg and orchestrations by Ethan Popp.

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.

This new stage 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 critically-acclaimed production received its world premiere in April 2018 in London and subsequently has broken all Box Office records at the Aldwych Theatre.

Next month, the German premiere of Tina – The Tina Turner Musical begins performances at the Stage Operettenhaus in Hamburg and the musical will have its Broadway premiere in Autumn 2019.
