The Lunt-Fontanne opened in 1910 as the Globe Theatre, named after Shakespeare’s famed theatre in England. Designed by Carrere and Hastings for producer Charles B. Dillingham, the lavish theatre remained dark during much of the Depression and soon became a movie theatre. It was fully refurbished and returned to legitimate use in 1958 as the Lunt-Fontanne, named for married actors Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.
This new musical reveals a comeback story like no other, of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of racism, sexism and ageism to become the global Queen of Rock n’ Roll. Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is a celebration of resilience and an inspiration of triumph over adversity.
