The Tina Turner Musical reveals the struggling life of the 60's queen Tina and how she fought bravely and nourished her talent of singing. A modest standout in the 2016 George Wolfe extravaganza "Shuffle Along", Warren busts out into full stardom here, doing Tina proud. The music throughout the show includes "Proud Mary", "River Deep, Mountain High", "Private Dancer" and her smash hit, "What's Love Got to Do with It". And the way Warren tears through Tina's musical numbers here is rarely less than spectacular: nearly every song, from "Nutbush City Limits", and "River Deep Mountain High" to "We Don't Need Another Hero", hits some kind of goosebump apex; several Turner recordings originated by other artists are thrown into the mix too: Al Green's "Let's Stay Together", Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand the Rain".

Although the musical just opened, Warren is already receiving praise for her breakout performance.

To be sure, the narrative arc is hardly challenging, advancing step by step in strict chronological order as dictated by the trajectory of the songs. It delves into Tina's childhood, relationship with her mother and sons, her marriage to Ike, the violence in the marriage and Tina's solace through Buddhism.

Warren is on stage with an fantastic cast that includes Daniel J. Watts as Ike; Dawnn Lewis as Zelma, her mother; Mars Rucker as her older sister Alline; and Myra Lucretia Taylor as her grandmother, Gran Georgeanna, and her childhood caregiver.

The musical follows the life and career of Turner, including turbulent times she endured. I mean, this little girl can S-I-N-G!

Prior to getting on stage, Turner and Winfrey walked the red carpet arm-in-arm at the theater, waving at fans gathered to watch. It is absolutely captivating to see how she logically interweaves Tina Turner's songs into the engaging storyline.

Warren shows us that side of Tina when she's all alone and down on her luck in England.

Phyllida Lloyd directs the musical, with Katori Hall writing its book alongside Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins. She is one of the favorite, evergreen, all-time singers. Everyone in the studio is stunned into silence, but Tina tosses it off, as she always does these bursts of rage.

Throughout the show, most of the narrative is advanced through the songs. Try putting that into a song.

The music icon and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, 79, stopped by opening night of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, the electrifying and heart-stopping new stage show based on her life - surprising the audience with an emotional post-show speech. Instead, their frenetic, glitter-strewn script rushes headlong through almost every scene, galloping past the biographical milestones of an extraordinary life only long enough to mark them and move on to what the audience has presumably come for: the music.
