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.

“Acting not so good, singing was ok.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Theater small, no leg room, seats in 1st mezzannine. Singing ok, acting not so good. Too much racial talk- in your face, this was not necessary. We are there for a fun musical, not to feel bad.

I was really disappointed in the show.,the dancing was not synchronized and the show fell flat.
Hated all the little snippets of songs.. Liked Berry's voice.

“Great Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

The music of Motown was presented by a group of remarkably talented performers. I've seen this show twice and would love to see it again. Very entertaining!
