A musical based on the life and music of Tina Turner will make its Broadway debut in the fall of 2019.
”Tina” made its world premiere in London this past April and is currently playing at the Aldwych Theatre in the city’s west-end.
”Bringing this musical to life on stage and working with this team has meant so much to me,” said Turner, who co-produced the musical.
”I feel that it is in many ways a culmination of my career. London audiences have been and continue to be extraordinary. Now, the bright lights of Broadway are calling, and I’m very excited to share this beautiful show with new York audiences next year.”
The Manhattan theatre where it’ll be based, casting and performance dates will be announced at a later date.
The 78-year-old Turner has been semi-retired the last decade.
Her last album was released in 1999 and last live tour was her 2008-2009 50th Anniversary Tour.
A second memoir, ”Tina Turner: My Love Story,” is to be released later this year.
