Nearly four years ago, Tina Turner wrote an exclusive for Rolling Stone on how the music icon's life story came to life on the Broadway stage.
"My life has been quite a story. The story of a little girl who grew up with big ambitions; the story of a naive young woman who entered into a troubled marriage with nothing but her voice and her dreams and who escaped — just barely — with nothing but her voice and her dreams; the story of a middle-aged singer with strong winds against her who found success and true love with the man she never thought she’d meet. I thought about that, and of all the people who tell me that my story gives them hope and is my legacy, and I said, ‘Yes.’ Then, I sat back to watch director Phyllida Lloyd and writer Katori Hall do what they do best.”
