“I’m so proud of everything that Adrienne has achieved over the last year in the West End,” Turner said. “She has given it everything she’s got, she has poured her soul into it, and she deserves every success. I am thrilled she will be reprising her role in New York, and I cannot wait to see her on that Broadway stage on Opening Night.”
