WAS GOOD BUT NOT SIMPLY THE BEST

The production and set are fabulous, the cast were wonderful and the script impeccable. The cast were brilliant. Sadly Tina herself didnt quite make the grade for me. Voice was too screaming and nasal sounding. I saw the show in London and felt like I was watching Tina Live, it was perfect so I was thrilled when I saw it was going to be in Dallas. I am hoping that maybe todays main character was stand in, because if not, she Simply not the best

GOOD EFFORT BUT NOT ONE OF MY FAVORITES

The last show in Boston was packed with energy, great lighting effects and powerful voices for sure. I just couldn’t relate the woman playing Tina to the actual Tina. The cast gave it their all and gave us the best of themselves. I just can’t say it was a memorable experience for me.

TINA TURNER MUSICAL SO-SO

After seeing a scene on the Tony Awards and reading reviews, I really wanted to see the show. And I really wanted to love it. But I didn't. It was very disappointing. The roles of Tina, her Australian manager, and German marketing manager were miscast. Tina was a show stopping icon. The actress playing her is not. Many of he vocal performances were screechy, making it hard to understand the lyrics at times. Although she tried, her dancing was rather clumsy. The accents of the actors portraying an Australian and German were awful. Telling Tina's story is difficult. Her life was filled with physical and verbal abuse, and abandonment by her mother at a young age. It's not expected the entire show will be upbeat and rosy. But the writing and direction lingered on some of the tragedy too long, which caused the show to drag in spots during both acts. The star of the show is the girl who plays young Tina as a child. She's energetic, believable, and a wonderful singer. Overall the show was disappointing.

TINA TURNER

This review is rated LOW ONLY for precautionary and health concerns. In the height of excitement and magic, the prolonged loud music (played especially when actors were talking) was distracting and uncomfortable. Most of the time we could not hear or understand the oral message of the event. Please pay close attention to The World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations that indoor events and venues limit sound levels to 100-107 decibels equivalent (dB) over a 15-MINUTE PERIOD to reduce "unnecessarily hazardous sound levels" while still allowing for artistic expression. I feel certain that Tanger Performing Arts will respect and respond to this issue in a timely manner I will check to see what your decibel levels were at the March 30th production in Greensboro, NC Otherwise- Great Performance. Hope to continue being a loyal follower.

PITCHY

I saw this performance at the Orpheum in MPLS. This show was double cast and during our show, Zurin Villanueva played Tina. Her voice was pitchy and sharp and did not resemble Tina’s voice at all. It was difficult to listen to. We were also not impressed with the writing, which did not have much nuance and did not flesh out the characters or certain aspects of Ms. Turner’s life (e.g., Buddhism, Ike is one note).

2.0 star rating Phil Meyer from Chicago, Illinois

SLOPPY AND RUSHED AND CHEAP

This tour feels like it's been on the road for too long and it needs a tune up. The music is all there, but it falls short on Villanueva's performance. (Perhaps the other Tina is better?) The direction feels flat, and misses the emotional center of the story. And the choreography is too rushed and sloppy. I was most surprised by how lackluster the set design was. Except for the curtain call concert which shows very well, every other set felt like the cheapest solution. I hope this is not the future of touring companies post Covid.

THIS IS A CONCERT NOT BROADWAY THEATER

If all you want is to hear Tina's greatest hits, then you came to the right place. But if you were looking for substance and meaningful storytelling you might find yourself tempted to leave midway. Inserting songs inaccurately and often decades before in her life was confusing and forced. Did not follow her life factually. But the final 20 minutes are the best. Great performances to finish the night like a concert, just not a theatrical storytelling I was hoping for.

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.
