The big wheel keeps on turning as crowds keep on roaring at the Lunt-Fontanne. The theatre is now home to Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, which kicked off preview performances October 12. In its first full week of performances (ending October 20), the new show played to full capacity.

With seven performances, Tina joined the Millionaires’ Club with $1,386,360—96 percent of its potential. The show, starring Adrienne Warren (following her Olivier-nominated stint in the role in the West End), will officially open November 7.
