Tina - The Tina Turner Musical - Aldwych Theatre

It’s been a while since we last heard an update from the upcoming Tina Turner musical coming to the Aldwych Theatre. The show is set to begin performances this month, with an official opening in April, and so there will be a lot of work coming together ahead of its start date.

But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any more announcements to make and with that in mind it has revealed the names of the younger cast members making up the list of performers taking to the stage.

So whilst we already knew that Adrienne Warren is set to play Tina Turner, we now get word – via Official London theatre – of further names like Reya-Nyomi Brown, Claudia Elie, Serena Mukuna, Athea Andi, Nicole Dube, Arianne Duffus, Rohan Beckford, Caelan Edie and Kylan St Paul Mark.

Tina: The Tina Turner musicals is the latest in a long line of popular jukebox musicals to appear in the capital in recent years, with Thriller Live and Mamma Mia! ongoing and newcomers like The Simon & Garfunkel Story and Bat Out of Hell The Musical drawing in the crowds.

But this one is likely to cause a huge stir. The show has already announced a booking extension to October 2018 in light of its popularity, so it is likely to be one of the theatre events of the year. It’s a testament, not only to the enduring appeal of Tina Turner and her songs, but also to the ongoing popularity of jukebox musicals, which continue to delight audiences with their stories and powerful renditions of hit songs.

In that case that story chronicles the life of Turner alongside the songs that made her name, with Warren playing Turner alongside fellow performers Kobna Koldbrook-Smith and Madeline Appiah.

The Aldwych Theatre is currently awaiting the arrival of this show, with no performance due there until it opens. It was previously the home of another jukebox musical in the form of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, which closed last summer.

Tina: The Tina Turner Musical then runs at the West End venue from Tuesday 17th April 2018 (with previews from Wednesday 21st March 2018).
