Proud Mary will keep on rolling into midtown this fall as Tina—The Tina Turner Musical makes its Broadway premiere. The show will begin performances October 12 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, with opening night set for November 7.
As previously announced, Tony nominee Adrienne Warren will take on the title role of the rock legend, having recently earned an Olivier Award nomination for her performance in the musical's world premiere in London's West End. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and featuring a book by Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, the musical explores the life and legacy of the music artist, from humble beginnings in Tennessee to becoming a global phenomenon—all set to Turner's decades of hits.
The Broadway production will feature choreography by Anthony van Laast, sets and costumes by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Bruno Poet, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, projections by Jeff Sugg, orchestrations by Ethan Popp, and music supervision from Nicholas Skilbeck.
The Lunt-Fontanne was recently home to bio-musical Summer: The Donna Summer Musical. Prior to Tina's bow, a lineup of concerts and special engagements will take the stage as pat of the In Residence on Broadway series. The roster currently features Morrissey, Yanni, Regina Spektor, and Criss Angel.
