The fabulous Tina Turner (and her longtime companion Erwin Bach) has every reason to smile because the new musical based on her life opened in London to great reviews. Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is described as a jukebox musical (our favorite!) and it has the same female musical director as Mamma Mia. Tina’s shoes are really hard to fill, but singer/dancer/actress Adrienne Warren is described as SO delicious playing Tina, (second photo) that it’s expected to propel her into superstardom. The current #MeToo movement makes the tale of Ike Turner’s abuse and Tina’s eventual solo success even sweeter. We can hardly WAIT to see this!
