Broadway veteran Daniel J. Watts (seen in hits such as the original The Color Purple, The Little Mermaid, In The Heights, Ghost the Musical, After Midnight, Motown, and Hamilton) reprising his Tony nominated portrayal as acclaimed singer and musician but also…..the cruel, wicked, horrifying, narcasstic, and the domestically abusive husband himself “Ike Turner“,

Myra Lucretia Taylor (Broadway’s 2003 revival of NINE and the National Tour of WICKED) reprising her Tony nominated performance as “Gran Georgeanna”,
and a full Ensemble.
In addition because of the demands of the show, the role of “Tina Turner” will once again be alternated. Adrienne Warren will share the role of “Tina Turner” once again with Nkeki Obi-Melekwe.
