SAN ANTONIO – Broadway in San Antonio at the Majestic Theatre will honor the queen of rock ‘n’ roll with a musical detailing the triumphant story of Tina Turner.
The iconic singer and stage performer passed away Tuesday at 83 after living with a long illness in her home in Switzerland, according to the Associated Press.
“TINA: The Tina Turner Musical” will be shown at the Majestic Theatre from January 16, 2024, to January 21, 2024.
The two-hour and 40-minute show allows San Antonionians to watch Tina’s journey against all odds to become one of the world’s most beloved artists, according to the website.
Her story is widely known as she became a superstar in her 40s after escaping an abusive and emotionally battered 20-year relationship.
Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Katori Hall and directed by the internationally acclaimed Phyllida Lloyd, the musical will also showcase a “pulse-pounding soundtrack” of her most beloved hits.
