Interview with Tiki Hopson

Dramaturg Leayne Dempsey sat down on Zoom with Takia “Tiki” Hopson, touring cast member of TINA: The Tina Turner Musical on October 5th, 2022 for this interview. They talk about the audition process, advice they would give to their younger selves, and the cultural relevance of a work of art like TINA. Students from The National Theatre’s Teens Behind the Scenes program came to see the show on October 8th. While this interview is geared towards high school students, there are lots of “Tiki gems” that everyone can enjoy!
