2.0 star rating Surprisingly Disappointed Tina Fan from Los Angeles, California


The cast is giving everything they have to writing that lets them (and us) down. They try to tell Tina's entire life story leaving little time to focus on any one aspect. When there is focus it's on Tina being beaten. Through out the second half many people were getting up and leaving mid performance.

I came of age with Tina's solo career. She was all legs, sexy, fashion and heat. She had a voice that could move the top off a mountain. Wouldn't know if from this show. They chose great songs and the band was smokin' but that's where the magic ended. Such a literal and unimaginative and uninspired interpretation. For example, the number "Can't stand the Rain" consists of her and Ike under umbrellas. Come on people! Such unimaginative choreo and such a literal interpretation of a song that is so much more than about the RAIN! The young Tina in the start of Act I had the fire but the woman who played adult Tina, her voice had moments of power and veracity but it was not consistent. Truly , Act II was actually painful to sit through! Only the encores brought some heat. If this is your first time to try and experience the magic and power of Tina Turner, it won't work and for those of us who know her power, not only did not do her justice, it was an insult. I know she had a hand in the show but but somewhere along the road, it lost its heart, heat, creativity and sexiness. I didn't think it was possible but this production takes the Tina out of Tina.

2.0 star rating from St. Louis, Missouri


I love Tina Turner music and was very disappointed in the production in St. Louis. The actress portraying Tina was not a great dancer and she was difficult to understand when singing. I expected more familiar music and better choreography. The real star of the show was the young actress who played young Tina. She was phenomenal…blew everyone else away. Her voice, enthusiasm and acting were remarkable. Too bad the rest of the show didn’t have her energy.

2.0 star rating Kris from Dallas, Texas


The set was very cheaply put together. The actress wasn’t able to embody Tina. She did have a great voice but at times was pitchy and hard to understand. It felt like a really long high school play. I struggled to really focus. I think they gave it their all but… the best part was the encore at the end.

2.0 star rating Carol S. from Hartford, Wisconsin


I was excited to see Tina. Very disappointed. Your sound system is terrible..Hard to understand the actors. The Tina actors not good at all, not even close to Tinas voice. This actually reminded me of a grade school play.

1.0 star rating Mark Sugrue from Boston, Massachusetts


No acting. No singing. Cheesy production. Absolutely horrible. Left at intermission. There was not a single vocalist that could carry a tune. Off pitch on every song. Would have been kicked off Americas Got Talent. Production was cheap. Ex oh expected so much more. Did not honor Tina Turner at. Show should close.

1.0 star rating Ellen from Orlando, Florida


The acting and the sets were of high school caliber. Those were not Broadway dancers. They did a disservice to Tina Turners voice and overall it was not entertaining. The last two songs at the end were the best part of the whole show. Saw it on Broadway and there’s no comparison…..Cheap and cheesy production

What we thought

A rolling SUCCESS!

The high never really stops as Adrienne Warren delivers simply the best performance as the Queen of Rock and Roll.

Fans of all ages were whooping from the first bars of the first song (Nutbush City Limits - what else?) And the high never really stops as Adrienne Warren delivers simply the best performance as the Queen of Rock and Roll.
