“Brilliant show.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Absolutely fantastic, the show is so full of energy.
All the actors are great singer and dancers, following the rise of Motown music and the lives of those involved in it.
It`s definitely a must see, if you only get to see one show while you are in the city , this is the one to see.

“Energetic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This musical had us clapping, cheering, and dancing in the aisles. The cast was amazing! The actor who played Barry Gordon was especially good as was the young actor who played the young Michael Jackson. If you love Motown...you have got to go see this musical!

“Great music and great memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Being from Detroit originally, my wife and I were really looking forward to seeing this play. And, we were not disappointed. The musical productions were spot on and the dancing exciting. We highly recommend this show.

“Bday present”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Fun, Fun, Fun show, started fun, a bit dragging about the personal life, but, that is what the play is about!?!?!? Diana Ross character was over the top, probably what she's really like. Would have wanted more Stevie Wonder and more music of the time. Very enjoyable, I recommend it highly. Went on a TUESDAY night in October 2013, not an empty seat in the house! Love that! I <3 NY.
