L-R: Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Tina Turner and Adrienne Warren; Dave Benett/Getty ImagesTina Turner‘s been keeping a low profile the last few years, but the 78-year-old music legend was looking good during a rare public appearance Tuesday in London to celebrate the world premiere of Tina, the musical based on her life.
“After 3 years of hard work from our fantastic cast & crew, @TinaTheMusical makes its World Premiere Performance @TheAldwych tonight,” Tina tweeted, along with a photo of the smiling cast and crew, with her right in the middle. “It’s meant so much to me to be so closely involved in this production. To all my fans & audiences, I hope you enjoy the show!”
Actress Adrienne Warren plays Turner in Tina — from her early days, to her Ike and Tina days, all the way into her 1980s career resurgence, and beyond. So far, the musical’s getting terrific reviews. Actor Kobna Holdbrook-Smith plays Ike Turner.
