Tony Award nominee Adrienne Warren will head back to Broadway to reprise her role of Tina Turner in Tina – The Tina Turner Musical for a limited engagement.
Nominated for 12 Tony Awards, the acclaimed show will reopen at Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre at 205 West 46th Street on Friday, Oct. 8. Additional casting has not been announced yet.
The musical’s Tony-nominated book writer Katori Hall recently won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tina Turner is a 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominee.
As S&A’s Aramide Tinubu wrote about the show in 2019, “The energy, sheer power and charisma that the Tony Award nominee exudes are so mesmerizing; it’s as if you’re watching the legend herself on stage. Moreover, the impactfulness of Turner’s five-decade-long career, one that did not really skyrocket until she was in her 40s, is a narrative that we can all appreciate.”
Tina – The Tina Turner Musical directed by Tony Award nominee Phyllida Lloyd with choreography by Tony Award nominee Anthony van Laast, set and costume designs by Tony Award nominee Mark Thompson, musical supervision, additional music and arrangements by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Tony Award nominee Bruno Poet, sound by Tony Award nominee Nevin Steinberg, projection design by Tony Award nominee Jeff Sugg, orchestrations by Tony Award nominee Ethan Popp, wigs, hair and makeup design by Drama Desk Award winner Campbell Young Associates, music direction by Alvin Hough Jr. and casting by The Telsey Office.
Warren, who originated the role on West End and Broadway, will also star in ABC’s Women of the Movement anthology series.
