CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

The New York Times reports:

“Tina,” a jukebox musical about the turbulent life of the rock star Tina Turner, is coming to Broadway. The show, with the full title “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical,” will open next fall, the producers said this week. They did not announce a specific date or a theater.

The musical has been running in London since March, and a second production is scheduled to open in Hamburg, Germany, next March, so Broadway will be the show’s third simultaneous production.

The London cast is led by Adrienne Warren, a Tony nominee for “Shuffle Along”; she is widely expected to star in the New York production as well, but casting has not yet been determined.
