Show detailsMotown the Musical is a celebration of the sweet sound that changed minds, touched lives and made history. It might well be described as the ultimate jukebox musical, fitting in around 50 songs from the Tamla Motown stable into a pulsating show lasting around two and a half hours. Between the hits is the rags to riches story of Berry Gordy, the man who had the vision to create and popularise a sound that has become universally loved.
The show arrives in the West End after a two year run on Broadway and a US tour. Audiences are taken on a musical journey through the golden age of the Motown label featuring tracks from legendary artists Diana Ross and the Supremes, Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Marvin Gaye and many more. Supported by an eighteen piece orchestra, the cast perform hit songs including “My Girl”, “Dancing In The Street”, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”, “Where Did Our Love Go”, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough“ and The Jackson Five 'ABC'.
The story begins in 1983, on the evening of the 25th anniversary celebration of Motown and charts the rise of Motown founder Berry Gordy who began his journey with an $800 loan from his family. He was soon transformed from being a featherweight boxer to heavyweight music mogul, creating a soundtrack which defined a generation. Follow the ups and downs of the personal relationships, the professional struggles of the man who broke barriers and fought against the odds to discover a number of groundbreaking artists.
"In its triumphant new West End incarnation, it gives a valuable leg-up to a mass of young, gifted and black British talent and puts such a spring in its audience's step, you may well see people dancing in the street along Shaftesbury Avenue...
The Telegraph - Dominic Cavendish
"Motown the Musical may just be the ultimate jukebox musical. Short of putting a physical jukebox on the stage and playing a succession of the records once minted by the famous Detroit-based record label that emerged in the 1950s and made a succession of black solo artists and singing groups into global superstars, musicals don't get more like a parade of wall-to-wall hits than this.
"The music is so thrillingly and beautifully rendered, this jukebox trip down memory lane just can't fail."
The Stage - Mark Shenton
"What's not to like? A hit on Broadway, this chronicle-cum-celebration of Tamla Motown arrives in the West End complete with faithful and dynamic re-creations of some of the greatest pieces of soul pop ever recorded."
The Times - Dominic Maxwell
