Tina: The Tina Turner Musical continues at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre after returning to Broadway October 8, 2021. During a busy December, company member Ari Groover gave Playbill an exclusive look inside the life of an actor during a two-show day.
The musical follows the life of Tina Turner from humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her transformation into a global star, featuring several of her hits, including "River Deep Mountain High," "Proud Mary," "Private Dancer," and "(Simply) The Best."
Following premieres in London’s West End and Hamburg, Germany, the musical opened on Broadway November 7, 2019. It would go on to earn 12 Tony nominations, including Best Musical, with Adrienne Warren winning Best Actress in a Musical for her performance as Tina Turner.
