A musical based on the life of a late music icon is on a national tour of the U-S.
Broadway’s “The Tina Turner Musical” makes its California debut this week. It opens tomorrow at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, just steps away from Turner’s star on the city’s Walk of Fame.
The musical on national tour gains extra meaning in the wake of the rock icon’s death.
“We have always wanted to put audiences in the room with her and it’s obviously going to have even more of a special meaning now that she is gone from us physically,” says Katori Hall, co-writer of the musical.
Turner died last month in Switzerland at the age of 83.
