You wouldn’t expect in depth detail from a biomusical – and you don’t get it – but her first meeting with Ike, their subsequent abusive marriage, her suicide attempt and her espousal of Buddhism are all touched on before the concert style finale.
A lazy script relies on historical background projections and the changing wigs of Chris Tummings’ coke-snorting Ike to mark the passage of time.
But, fittingly, Emi Wokoma is an ageless powerhouse, belting out River Deep, Mountain High, Proud Mary and Simply The Best in true Tina fashion.
