New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Stage Entertainment and Ghostlight Records have announced that TINA - THE Tina Turner MUSICAL Original London Cast Recording is available for digital download and streaming today Friday, March 29. A physical CD is planned for release later this spring. The album was recorded in February 2019 at Angel Studios and RAK Studios, produced by the musical's Music Supervisor Nicholas Skilbeck and 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.

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, where it is now booking to December 2019. Adrienne Warren, who plays Tina Turner in the show in the West End, will recreate her celebrated performance on Broadway in Autumn 2019.

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 Tina Turner herself, reveals the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race. The German premiere of TINA - THE Tina Turner MUSICAL began performances earlier this month at the Stage Operettenhaus in Hamburg.

Starting April 15, 2019, Nkeki Obi-Melekwe will lead the cast in the title role with Ashley Zhangazha as Ike Turner.
