Broadway will be full of R&B again soon, I’m happy to report.
“Tina– The Tina Turner Musical” will return to its performances on Friday, October 8th. And the “Ain’t Too Proud,” the musical about Motown’s Temptations, hits the stage on Saturday, October 16th.
For “Tina,” the re-opening is important because it’s a Tony Awards nominated musical from 2020. Star Adrienne Warren has had to wait 18 months to be announced as Best Actress in a Musical. It’s been a cruel season for the 2020 performers and nominees.
Will we see Tony Awards of some kind this fall? It is hoped that the Broadway League will do something in September or October to welcome shows back and close this strange chapter.
“Ain’t Too Proud” was from the prior season. Great show, and I can’t wait to see it again!
PS that date for “Tina” is a couple of week after the Emmy Awards when HBO’s Tina documentary should have picked up some awards too!
