The sho opened in London's West End in April, and the New York Times gave it a good, if not glowing review.
"The director Phyllida Lloyd and a creative team that includes many of Ms. Lloyd’s colleagues from the ABBA-scored musical smash “Mamma Mia!” have folded Ms. Turner’s formidable songbook into a briskly efficient, if often formulaic, survey of her life — or, at least, a sizable chunk of it," wrote critic Matt Wolff in April.
Tony nominee Adrienne Warren will play Turner. The rest of the cast has not yet been announced. Warren was nominated for Olivier Award nomination for her performance in the musical's world premiere in London's West End.
