Tina—The Tina Turner Musical, nominated for 12 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, will launch a multi-year North American tour in the fall at the Providence Performing Arts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
The tour will subsequently play more than 40 cities in its first year, including a March, 2023, engagement at Minneapolis' Orpheum Theatre. Additional tour dates, ticket information, and casting will be announced at a later time.
“It has been years since I toured the U.S., and I am very excited that my own musical can now bring my music and story to my fans in their home cities across America," says Tina Turner. "Together with the show running on Broadway, it’s a homecoming and that is very special to me."
Produced by Stage Entertainment, James L. Nederlander, and Tali Pelman, in association with Turner, the musical about the life of the Grammy-winning musical icon is written by Tony nominee and Pulitzer Prize winner Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins.
Tina is directed by Tony nominee Phyllida Lloyd with choreography by Tony nominee Anthony van Laast, set and costume designs by Tony nominee Mark Thompson, musical supervision, additional music, and arrangements by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Tony nominee Bruno Poet, sound by Tony nominee Nevin Steinberg, projection design by Tony nominee Jeff Sugg, orchestrations by Tony nominee Ethan Popp, wigs, hair, and makeup design by Drama Desk Award winner Campbell Young Associates, and casting by The Telsey Office.
Tina—The Tina Turner Musical received its world premiere in April 2018 in London at the Aldwych Theatre. In March 2019 the German production opened at Stage Operettenhaus in Hamburg, and the Dutch production opened at the Beatrix Theater, Utrecht, in February 2020. A third European production opened in fall 2021 at the Teatro Coliseum in Madrid, Spain.
The musical opened on Broadway November 7, 2019, starring Adrienne Warren, who won a Tony for her performance, in the title role (Warren was also Olivier-nominated for her work in the London staging). The production reopened at Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne October 8, 2021, following the 18-month shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
