A new jukebox musical based on the life and works of Tina Turner is currently in development and is expected to reach the West End shortly following a series of workshops and readings. Produced by Stage Entertainment this jukebox musical is written by Katori Hall and dramatises her life story set to a familiar soundtrack of hit songs which include "What's Love Got to Do?", "Proud Mary", "River Deep Mountain High" and "Simply the Best".
Director Phyllida Lloyd is currently attached to Tina the Musical alongside other creative team members, set and costume designer Mark Thompson, choreographer Anthony van Laast and musical supervisor Nicholas Skilbeck. A London workshop was held on 16 December 2016 and was attended by Turner herself who commented: "I am delighted to be able to share our news as we begin the next chapter of our journey. It has been wonderful to collaborate with Katori and Phyllida and to have my story nurtured by such an amazing creative team is thrilling. London has always had a very special place in my heart and it’s wonderful to be back.”
