Lunt-Fontanne Theatre | New York, New York
The most obvious difference between live musicals and the cinema is the immediacy. Movies are edited and cut to perfection, whereas at the theatre, the actors are really in the room with you. In a weird way, the possibility that things can go wrong at any moment is actually quite of exciting, and something you can ONLY get at the theater. Normally, things go to plan and a successful show seems absolutely miraculous; pulling it off with no hiccups provides a palpable release of tension for both the actors and the audience, which only adds to the excitement. So why not come to the Lunt Fontanne Theatre and watch one of the shows that has been taking the nation by storm, the incredible TINA – The Tina Turner Musical, live?!
The cast is made up of Nkeki Obi-Melekwe, who performs the lead role and took over from Adrienne Warren, who is reprising the role on Broadway. Nkeki’s warm personality really comes across on stage and with all the right dance moves, it’s easy to think for just a split second that Tina Turner has been reborn. But the ensemble cast add just as much to the performance, with breathtaking vocals for the entire show, it truly is a team effort. So come down to the fan favorite Lunt Fontanne Theatre in Manhattan for this very anticipated musical.
