Turner has long supported Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, showing up to cheer the show on both back in April 2018 (when it opened in London's West End) and this past March (for the premiere of the show's German production in Hamburg). See you at the Tonys @adriennelwarren!
"This musical is my life, but it's like poison that turned into medicine", the 79-year-old singer said, adding: "I can never be as happy as I am now". The music is fantastic, the staging is deluxe, the central figure is a cultural icon and the lead performer, Adrienne Warren, is sensational. She was also nominated for a Tony for her 2016 performance in "Shuffle Along".
The musical follows the life and career of Turner, including turbulent times she endured.
Hall is not only the lead book writer but a co-producer of the musical. And that doesn't surprise me at all.
"Now, that's what I call a Broadway show!" This sister knows what to say and how to say it!
Warren, 32, played Turner when it debuted in the West End, and transfers with the production to Broadway. And "Better Be Good to Me" is a sadly ironic hint of what's in store for little Miss Anna Mae from Nutbush, Tenn. She's electrifying - and after almost three overstuffed hours, it felt great, at last, to be breathless for all the right reasons. But Warren lends her own style and her own soul to the music, bringing something special and more personal to familiar numbers like the shivery-good "River Deep, Mountain High". "And believe me, by the time you hear "(Simply) The Best" there is no doubt in your mind that those words describe Warren and the entire experience of witnessing "Tina".
The test of any star is the ability to rise above adversity, and Tina Turner has had more than her share.
Other stars include Daniel J. Watts, Dawnn Lewis, Nkeki Obi-Melekwe, and Myra Lucretia Taylor, plus Steven Booth, Nick Rashad Burroughs, Gerald Caesar, Holli' Conway, Kayla Davion, Leandra Ellis-Gaston, Charlie Franklin, Judith Franklin, Matthew Griffin, Sheldon Henry, David Jennings, Ross Lekites, Robert Lenzi, Gloria Manning, Rob Marnell, Mehret Marsh, Jhardon DiShon Milton, Destinee Rea, Mars Rucker, Jessica Rush, Justin Schuman, Alyssa Shorte, Carla Stewart, Jayden Theophile, Skye Dakota Turner, Antonio Watson and Katie Webber.
"Tina" also has a great ensemble cast and, with those dance moves by Van Laast, I don't know when they had a chance to catch their breath. Wow! And the way Warren tears through Tina's musical numbers here is rarely less than spectacular: nearly every song, from "Nutbush City Limits", and "River Deep Mountain High" to "We Don't Need Another Hero", hits some kind of goosebump apex; several Turner recordings originated by other artists are thrown into the mix too: Al Green's "Let's Stay Together", Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand the Rain". After seeing "Tina" you realize "We Don't Need Another Hero" because she's already here!
