Tina Turner in London, TINA The Musical Workshop – December 2016
We talked about it for months (even decades among TINA Titans) and today it is finally official! TINA The Musical, will hit London’s West End in 2018. A special website has been launched for the occasion: TINA The Musical. Check it out & subscribe to the mailing list!
Moreover, here is a message from TINA herself:
We have been working on the musical for over a year now and today I am delighted to be able to share our news as we begin the next chapter of our journey. It has been wonderful to collaborate with Katori and Phyllida and to have my story nurtured by such an amazing creative team is thrilling. London has always had a very special place in my heart and it’s wonderful to be back.

‘She Dreamed a Dream’
From ‘Les Miserables’ to ‘FourTina’, Nurlaila Wolda-Karim saw big and got big! Today, everyone wonders if she will land the role of Tina Turner in the upcoming TINA Musical! We talked about it a couple of days ago in Rotterdam.
Rotterdam, The Netherlands. A weekend that starts with Grace Jones can only turn into an unusual and crazy weekend. First, a short detour by Paris on Friday to say a quick hello to Warhol & Goude’s muse who was signing her autobiography (I’ll Never Write My Memoirs – Simon & Schuster) at the very chic, Rive Gauche, ‘Bon Marché’. Always thrilling to approach people of that caliber and who have a lot in common with Tina. But not much time to spend there and to get emotional. I am expected to be in Amsterdam the next day to visit a few places we want to book for TINA77, our annual Fan Birthday Party, and the weekend is supposed to end in Rotterdam with an interview.

Dutch musical producer and business man Joop van den Ende has announced he will collaborate with Tina Turner on a musical production of her life. He just revealed the first details about the show this evening on Dutch television. For several years, Joop has been negotiating with Tina, visiting her several times in Zurich. Last weekend, the contract was finally signed, when Tina and her husband Erwin Bach visited Joop and his wife at their home in The Netherlands.

Queen has “We Will Rock You”, Abba has “Mama Mia”, Gloria Estefan just launched her “Get on Your Feet” show…. Musical blockbusters!
Tina Turner’s life has already been portrayed a few times on stage but never a big dimension project. However it seems like things are going to change… After years of mentioning it in several interviews, a real project with an official involvement from Tina herself will probably see the light of the day in the near future thanks to Dutch theatrical producer Joop Van Den Ende.
If it does happen that means that Tina will also get involved in promoting the musical in some sort of way so that’s something to look forward to!
Thanks to DJ for the info!
