Time Out London
June 26th, 2022

Is a feelgood jukebox musical the absolute best medium to tell a story about domestic abuse? Put crudely, that is the problem at the heart of big-budget global premiere...Don’t get me wrong: it’s an entertaining night, brilliantly performed.

Despite the show’s creative pedigree, with Mamma Mia! director Phyllida Lloyd at the helm and a book by The Mountain-top writer Katori Hall, nothing about the production is particularly interesting or innovative. It’s a standard bio-musical...

What a pity, then, that this musical never fully sparks into life...Yet the material surprisingly lacks rigour, too often staying in soft-focus when a more forensic examination is required...

"Is a feelgood jukebox musical the absolute best medium to tell a story about domestic abuse? Put crudely, that is the problem at the heart of big-budget global premiere ‘Tina'. The erstwhile Anna Mae Bullock’s eventful life and beloved back catalogue are perfect subjects for adaptation. But too often Phyllida Lloyd’s production struggles to make a sensitive synthesis of the two...Lloyd directs fluidly and at a pace, but there is, also, a weird feeling of it being clogged with ephemera."

Born in the USA, made in England. That’s the thesis of this slickly choreographed, beautifully designed and roof-raisingly well-sung bio-musical about Tina Turner...

The problem for me is that, at least for the first act which charts her relationship with Ike, what we actually witness is a strong woman being brought down by multiple acts of violence.

For a previous production

Phyllida Lloyd’s musical is a heady celebration of triumph over adversity...As bio-musicals go, this is as good as it gets.

The Arts Desk

For a previous production

[The] greatest hits should satisfy the Tina superfans, but there’s an unresolved tension here between producing a genuinely satisfying musical drama, and just surrendering to a great night out. This mould-breaking artist deserves more.
