Warren is reprising the role she played in the West End production of the show.

Additional casting is expected to be announced soon.

"This new musical, presented in association with Tina Turner herself, reveals the story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race," a press release said.

The 12-time, Grammy-winning recording star has been battling health issues in recent years. She suffered a stroke, then battled intestinal cancer and underwent a kidney transplant. She is known for her songs "What's Love Got to Do With It," "We Don't Need Another Hero," "Let's Stay Together," "Private Dancer," "River Deep -- Mountain High" and "Proud Mary."
