“Tina: The Tina Turner Musical” Comes to Broadway

In previews at the Lunt-Fontanne, the show traces the singer’s beginnings, her Motown rise to fame, and, of course, her turbulent partnership with Ike Turner.

Tina Turner is seventy-nine and happily retired in Switzerland, but her story and her music are still reverberating to the rafters in “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical,” which is playing in London, in Hamburg, and now on Broadway. The show, in previews at the Lunt-Fontanne, traces the singer’s beginnings, in Nutbush, Tennessee; her Motown rise to fame; and, of course, her turbulent partnership with Ike Turner, whose creative control and physical abuse she escaped in the mid-seventies. Adrienne Warren (above) plays the title role.
