Tina: The Tina Turner Musical star Adrienne Warren and book writer Katori Hall will take part in a moderated discussion at 92Y March 16. Led by culture critic Soraya Nadia McDonald, the conversation will explore the show’s inspiration and journey to the stage.

Warren will discuss how she channels the singer’s artistry and energy in her Olivier-nominated performance. In addition, Hall will explain how she crafted the story of Anna Mae Bullock’s humble beginnings in Nutbush City, eventually leading to a decades-long career that saw Tina Turner become The Queen of Rock n’ Roll.

Hall’s newest work The Hot Wing King begins performances February 12 at Signature Theatre Off-Broadway. She won an Olivier award for her play The Mountaintop, which was also seen on Broadway starring Angela Bassett and Samuel L. Jackson.
