Tina, a new musical based on the life of singer Tina Turner, opens at the Aldwych Theatre in London’s West End on March 21.
The cast comprises Adrienne Warren who plays the title role; Kobna Holdbrook-Smith as Ike Turner; Madeline Appiah as Tina’s mother, Zelma Bullock; and Jenny Fitzpatrick as the alternate Tina.
Presented in association with Tina Turner, the show follows her career from humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to becoming the ‘Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll’.
Turner has visited London to see the actors in rehearsal.
The production is booking until October 20.
