When you’re young, pop stars and actors may inspire you to go after a career in the performing arts. But when you get older, you realise that there’s much more you can learn from their dedication, determination and achievements despite adversity. Tina suffered what should have been crippling hardships throughout her life. She was abandoned by her parents at a very young age and was in an abusive relationship that lasted over 16 years. That relationship led her to drugs and the separation almost ended in bankruptcy. But she never lost sight of her goals. Despite her personal life – and the social attitudes of the time – Tina persisted and became one of the most illustrious artists of all time… when she was in her 40s. The tale of Tina’s triumph over adversity will make you feel empowered and inspired. So come and watch this amazing story unfold right in front of you live at the breathtaking Nederlander Theatre at Ford Center for the Performing Arts in Chicago.
