Tina: The Tina Turner Musical on Broadway in New York City

Date: May 1, 2020 to May 3, 2020

Registration deadline:  April 1, 2020

Enjoy a New York City Broadway Vacation including theater tickets, accommodations at Renaissance Time Square Hotel, and much more!

After a dazzling run in London Tony and Olivier Award nominee Adrienne Warren reprises her role as the iconic Tina Turner this spring on Broadway! Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is the inspiring story of Anna Mae Bullock who rose to fame as Tina Turner in the 1960’s. Her story is one of an extraordinary life and career – starting with a humble beginning in Nutbush, Tennessee - to a turbulent and abusive marriage to Ike Turner - and then a massive comeback in the 1980’s.

This foot stomping new 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. In fact, Tina is now considered to be one of the best-selling artists of all time - the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll has sold 180 million records worldwide and been honored with 11 Grammy Awards. The one, the only... Tina Turner!

Accommodations for 2-nights at a hotel in the heart of midtown Manhattan's famed Broadway Theater District, Times Square and Rockefeller Center. Mezzanine tickets to Tina: The Tina Turner Musical at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
