MOTOWN: THE MUSICAL is the real story of the one-of-a-kind sound that hit the airwaves in 1959 and changed our culture forever. This exhilarating show charts Motown Founder Berry Gordy's incredible journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, and so many more.

Go for the music. The music was the best part of the show. The dialogue was excessive and took away from the happy experience of enjoying the hits.

The music was good but not enough. To much dialogue. I though a group from Black lives matter would be in the last scene as well as Kapernick.

It was all I expected and more. Bette wowed the crowd with just her smile!! I wanted to hide under my seat so I could watch it again at the 8 pm performance. No regrets as it was simply fabulous

Saw it with a friend. I have to admit, it exceeded expectations. You will laugh and sing alone. Great show if you enjoy the Motown era.

The music was so great, you'd think you were really in the audience when the real artists were filming these classic TV performance's. The entertainment also may come from the other patrons in the audience. We sat next to a section that was singing along...More
