TINA – THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL will play its final performance at Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street) on Sunday, August 14, 2022 prior to launching a 30-city national tour on September 14, 2022 in Providence, RI, which will mark the sixth global production of the musical.

“To witness my story on the Broadway stage, created by the most talented artists, has been an incredible coda to a storied career,” said Tina Turner. “Looking back on Opening Night on Broadway almost three years ago and remembering the love and support I received from my friends and the Broadway community is an experience I will not soon forget. For this Nutbush, TN native, it was a homecoming long overdue and it has been an honor and a privilege to share this story with audiences across the globe.” 
 “Tina’s name has lit up every major marquee around the world and that includes the lights of Broadway. For all of us, this has been the journey of a lifetime,” said Tali Pelman. “On behalf of all the producers, we are so grateful for not only Tina’s trust in us, but to every person who has worked with us to make Tina’s dream a reality. We cannot wait to now bring this essential and triumphant story to cities across America.”
