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!
