Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Love love loved this musical. Agree with Fred S the kid who plays a young Michael Jackson steals the show. The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre is something to behold and the set design was amazing. Great voices with a talented cast.

Was a little sad that there were only a few of us bopping away and enjoying the sweet tunes but maybe that was because it was a matinee session, most of the crowd seemed very reserved but we sure enjoyed ourselves at any rate.

I saw Motown in Chicago at the Globe Theater. Very entertaining. Everyone was singing by the end of the show. The voices and costumes were amazing. You leave happy and humming. Enjoy!

Great, talented singers. Set changes between scenes are really cool as planks and screens move in and out...really impressive. Get your tickets at TKTS for 50% off savings...they have tickets most days since the show doesn't sell that well.

Tons of fun! You will be smiling throughout the show as you hear all the Motown songs that you know. Lots of opportunities to clap and tap your feet. Lasts 3 hours, a 15 minute intermission is included in that time. I sat in orchestra- 7th row from stage. Definitely worth the extra money for the seats!

We picked this on a Sunday evening and had a great time. The story is slight, but you get a great concert of about 30 of Motown's best. The young kind who plays Michael Jackson is great.
