Tina, the new musical based on the life of pop icon Tina Turner, which is currently playing London's Aldwych Theatre, will have its Broadway premiere in fall 2019 at a theatre to be announced.
Performances dates, casting, and further details will be announced at a later date.
In a statement Tina Turner said, “Bringing this musical to life on stage and working with this team has meant so much to me, I feel that it is in many ways a culmination of my career. London audiences have been and continue to be extraordinary. Now, the bright lights of Broadway are calling, and I’m very excited to share this beautiful show with New York audiences next year.”
Tina received its world premiere in April 2018 at the Aldwych Theatre. A separate production will open in Hamburg in 2019.
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and written by Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, the production has choreography by Anthony van Laast, with set and costume designs by Mark Thompson, musical supervision, additional music, and arrangements by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Nevin Steinberg, projection design by Jeff Sugg, and orchestrations by Ethan Popp.
Tina is produced in the West End by Stage Entertainment, Joop van den Ende, and Tali Pelman, in association with Tina Turner. Nederlander Presentations, Inc. will serve as a general partner with Stage Entertainment on Broadway.
