The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll is set to make Broadway part of her kingdom. According to Variety, “Tina,” a new musical based on the life and career of Tina Turner, will debut in New York City in the fall of 2019. A number of elements still have to come together, including casting, performance dates and a decision on where the show will play, but it looks as though the “Proud Mary” singer will become the latest performer to have a jukebox musical based on her catalog. It’s become a popular genre. “Girl From North Country,” a musical with songs from Bob Dylan, just opened at the Public Theater and is eyeing a Broadway engagement. “The Cher Show,” a look at the pop icon, has a Broadway engagement beginning in December. And “Ain’t Too Proud,” a show based on the Temptations’ R&B anthems, is also looking to debut on the Great White Way. That’s to say nothing of longtime favorites such as “Jersey Boys” and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” which continue to draw crowds. “Tina” is already showing in London.
