Spotify Release-Tina:The Tina Turner Musical

 

Normally these juke-box musical never quite work. Why would you listen to someone imitating Tina Turner when you can hear the real thing? But Tina :The Tina Turner Musical is a rare exception. Adrienne Warren takes the Ike and Tina Turner catalogue and brings a fresh interpretation. The classics sound new as Warren spins her magical voice on each track. She’s a fearless performer as she plows through Proud Mary, Private Dancer, Higher, We Don’t Need another Hero, Simply the Best, What’s Love Got to Do With It, and Let’s Stay Together. It’s a joy to take in all these hits in this Broadway musical format rather than just a greatest hits package. It’s surprising that one performer handles this gigantic task whereas for Donna Summer and Cher they needed three actresses. Bravo to Adrienne Warren. It’s coming to Broadway later this year.
