According to reports, Tina Turner herself was in London last week to attend a private workshop with an initial cast of 14. They will work from an initial draft of a book by Olivier Award winning playwright Katori Hall (The Mountaintop) in collaboration with director Phyllida Lloyd (Donmar's Shakespeare Trilogy, Mamma Mia!).
The forthcoming TINA TURNER musical is said to be a musical biography, chronicling her journey from rags to riches, to rags again, and ultimately to icon status. From growing up in the small town of Nutbush, to her stormy marrage to fellow musician Ike Turner, Tina Turner escaped his abuse before recording the brilliant comeback album Private Dancer in 1985 which propelled her to mega stardom.
Some of Tina Turner's greatest hits include "Fool In Love", "Proud Mary", "Nutbush City Limits", "What’s Love Got To Do With It", "I Don’t Wanna Fight" and "Simply The Best".
