She is most known and widely praised for her role as Tina Turner, in the West End production of Tina and the same role in the Broadway production, for which she received a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical nomination in 2020. In October 2020 Warren was cast in her first television leading role in the ABC limited series Women of the Movement playing activist Mamie Till-Mobley, the mother of Emmett Till.
