Tina Turner announced today that Adrienne Warren will portray her in the world premiere of new bio musical Tina when it opens at the Aldwych Theatre on 21 March 2018.

Adrienne Warren was most recently seen on Broadway in Shuffle Along at the Music Box Theatre for which she recieved a Tony Award nomination. She also appeared in Bring It On the musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tom Kitt on Broadway and on tour and in Dreamgirls at the Apollo Theatre.

Adrienne Warren said: “Growing up watching Tina, I knew how to shake my hips before I could tie my shoes!  I am so grateful to our creative team and producers for entrusting me with this responsibility.  I say responsibility, because I am a Tina Turner fan first. I am elated, honoured and humbled.  Meeting and working with Tina is and will always be one of the great moments of my life.  Can’t wait to see you in London!”

Tina Turner said:  “It has been my joy to introduce Adrienne today.  From the moment I met her at our last workshop I saw her exceptional talent. Playing this role will require immense physical and emotional commitment, and bravery too. We are thrilled to have found Adrienne, and I very much look forward to spending more time together and developing a special friendship I know will grow even stronger as we prepare the production for the Aldwych Theatre. We can’t wait to welcome her to the show.”

Further casting for Tina is to be announced.
