Sep 28 2023 • 41 mins

Karis Anderson is starring as Tina Turner in the West End production of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical at the Aldwych Theatre.

Karis originally joined the show as an Ikette and understudy for Tina. She took over as Tina earlier this year, sharing the role with Elesha Paul Moses.

Karis started out in music and was part of the Brit nominated girl group Stooshe. After Stooshe,  Karis ventured into theatre with her credits including: Diana Ross in Motown (UK Tour), PP Arnold in All Or Nothing (Ambassadors) and Genie of the Lamp in Aladdin (Jordan Productions).

Recorded backstage at the Aldwych, in this episode Karis discusses how she went from thinking she would never sing again to conquering the role of Tina, how she went from music to theatre and the impact this role has had on her life... plus lots more!

Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is booking at the Aldwych Theatre until September 2024. Visit www.tinathemusical.com for info and tickets.
