What to Watch For

  • From humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her transformation into the global Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Tina Turner didn’t just break the rules, she rewrote them. This new stage musical reveals the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race.

  • One of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, Tina Turner has won 12 Grammy Awards and her live shows have been seen by millions, with more concert tickets sold than any other solo performer in music history.

  • TINA - The Tina Turner Musical first premiered in London at the Aldwych Theatre in April 2018 and opened on Broadway in November 2019. The Australian premiere will open from March 2023 at the iconic Theatre Royal Sydney

  • The Queen of Rock n’ Roll has provided her stamp of approval. That is to say, Turner has been on hand for the musical’s creative evolution and has given the go-ahead for each character’s depiction and even their moves. In fact, Turner herself taught her original onstage counterpart, Adrienne Warren, how to do her signature move, the Pony.

  • While it would be nearly impossible to include the entire Tina Turner songbook into a single musical (that would be one long show), don’t expect any skimping. There are a massive 21 songs in TINA - The Tina Turner Musical — and yes, they’re the ones you want to hear and maybe even a few you weren’t expecting. Just like Turner herself, this musical is full of surprises.

  • Did you know that Tina Turner is listed in the Guinness Book of Records for selling more concert tickets than any solo performer in history? She has sold more than 200 million albums and singles worldwide to date, which makes her one of the biggest selling female artists in music history.

  • The American-born singer and actress chose to give up her American citizenship in 2013 after becoming a citizen of Switzerland.

  • Audiences should know that they’re in the most-competent jukebox hands with English talented director and producer Phyllida Lloyd, best known for directing one of the most universally beloved jukebox shows of all time, Mamma Mia! and film The Iron Lady starring Meryl Streep.

  • TINA - The Tina Turner Musical marks the first foray into libretto for award-winning book writer Katori Hall who made history as the first Black woman to win the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2010 for The Mountaintop.
