Collaborating on this world premier are writer Katori Hall, with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, director Phyllida Lloyd, set and costume designer Mark Thompson, choreography Anthony van Laast and musical supervisor Nicholas Skilbeck. Nkeki Obi-Melekwe is set to play Tina Turner.
Tina Turner said: “We have been working on the musical for over a year now and today 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.”
As the project develops, further details about the production will be announced.
