The West End hit Tina – The Tina Turner Musical has announced plans for its return to the stage.
The show’s organisers have announced that performances will be due to start again at the Aldwych Theatre on 3 June, depending on government COVID-19 restrictions.
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and written by Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, Tina depicts music icon Tina Turner’s journey to become a global superstar. It debuted in the West End in April 2018. The following year, original cast member Kobna Holdbrook-Smith won the Oliver Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his performance as Ike Turner.
Tina- The Tina Turner Musical is among other West End shows including Hamilton, Les Misérables and Mary Poppins who have also given prospective dates for their summer 2021 return. It is hoped that social distancing measures will be eased at this point in order to allow indoor audiences to return.
On the show’s website, the producers staid in a statement that “we are delighted to announce that Tina – The Tina Turner Musical plans to return to the West End from 3 June 2021 with tickets on sale until June 2022!
“We thank you for your patience and support during this time. We are now in the process of contacting those customers that have booked tickets for affected performances directly from the theatre Box Office, the Nederlander and TINA websites.”
Tickets for the musical’s new dates are now on sale.
