Adrienne Warren To Reprise Role As Tina Turner On Broadway


Adrienne Warren currently plays the title role in the West End production of the Tina Turner bio-musical Tina and has agreed to reprise the role in an upcoming Broadway production.

"Working on this show has been a life-changing experience for me.," Warren said in a statement. "Tina's unshakable courage, grace and determination have been our constant inspiration, and I am honored to have had the opportunity to be part of this telling of her story."

"It has been an amazing year in London, working with the incredible Phyllida Lloyd, Katori Hall and the creative team, in a city that has welcomed me with open arms," she added. "Returning home to Broadway, in this role and in this show, is a dream come true."

The theater, dates and additional casting will be announced in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Warren has been nominated for a Tony award for her performance in Shuffle Along, or the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed. Her Broadway debut was in Bring It On: The Musical, while her other theater credits include Dreamgirls at the Apollo Theatre and The Wiz at City Center Encores.

Turner said, "I'm so proud of everything that Adrienne has achieved over the last year in the West End. She has given it everything she's got, she has poured her soul into it and she deserves every success. I am thrilled she will be reprising her role in New York, and I cannot wait to see her on that Broadway stage on opening night."
