We went to see this musical as a birthday treat for my husband, who loves Motown music. He really enjoyed the show because it featured so many songs that he loves but as a non-aficionado I found it all rather mundane. Maybe I have been spoilt by shows such as Mamma Mia, but the way that the music was inserted also seemed quite random at times and there was too much of a focus on Diana Ross's music. However there were some great tunes to sing along to and I was particularly impressed with the young actor who played Michael Jackson, who had just the right amount of swagger as well as a great voice. I would recommend this show to Motown fans and to anyone who was around in the 60s and 70s when these songs dominated the hits parade.…

I was a bit sceptical as I knew nothing about this show, however I was pleasantly surprised! The cast vocals were jaw dropping! Overall a good musical, however not on to go down in history

Took my mum and 13 yr old cousin to see Memphis, and we loved it. The story confused my cousin slightly so wouldn't recommend for anyone younger than 13, but the dancing, acting and singing were fab. Definitely worth a watch!

Absolutely fantastic show, one of those that you don't need to know the songs beforehand to still throughly enjoy. The first half is definitely better than the second.

Outstanding singing in this vibrant show. You may not know the songs but the atmosphere sucks you in and the air is charged with energy. Another must see.
