London's Tina—The Tina Turner Musical is soon to be rollin' down the Atlantic with a Broadway transfer, but it's also poised to hit the airwaves. The bio-musical, starring Tony nominee Adrienne Warren as the rock 'n' roll legend, will release a West End cast recording. No word yet on a release date.
Warren and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith are scheduled to continue in the roles of Tina and Ike Turner at the Aldwych Theatre through April 13, and tickets are currently on sale through December 21.
The Phyllida Lloyd-directed production is set to make its U.S. premiere with a fall Broadway bow, with details (including casting) to be announced later. A separate production will open in Hamburg in February.
Tina weaves Turner's iconic discography with a book by Katori Hall (with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins) to tell the story of the artist, from humble beginnings in Tennessee to global phenomenon.
