About the show

Presented in association with Turner herself, this new Broadway musical tells the story of a woman who didn’t just break the rules, but rewrote them – defying the bounds of age, race, and gender time and time again.   More…

Rock legend Tina Turner has won 11 Grammy Awards. Her live concerts have been seen by millions. She’s sold more concert tickets than any other solo performer in music history. But where did the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll get her start?  "Tina - The Tina Turner Musical" traces the rock star from her humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, all the way through to her transformation into an icon of the music world.
