The album was recorded in February 2019 at Angel Studios and produced by the show’s Musical Supervisor, Nicholas Skilbeck, Ghostlight Records founder, Kurt Deutsch, and co-produced by Tom Kelly.
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and written by Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, Tina – The Tina Turner Musical is choreographed by Anthony van Laast, with set and costume designs by Mark Thompson, musical supervision by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Nevin Steinberg, projection design by Jeff Sugg and orchestrations by Ethan Popp.
From humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her transformation into the global Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Tina Turner didn’t just break the rules, she rewrote them. This new stage musical, presented in association with Turner herself, reveals the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race. The critically acclaimed production received its world premiere in April 2018 in London and subsequently has broken all Box Office records at the Aldwych Theatre. Next month, the German premiere of Tina – The Tina Turner Musical begins performances at the Stage Operettenhaus in Hamburg.
Tina – The Tina Turner Musical is produced by Stage Entertainment, Joop van den Ende and Tali Pelman, in association with Tina Turner. Adrienne Warren is appearing with the support of UK Equity, incorporating the Variety Artistes’ Federation, pursuant to an exchange program between American Equity and UK Equity.
