This was a pretty entertaining musical but by Broadway standards it failed to live up to many other musicals. When I see a musical, and give. The prices that you have to pay, I want to be blown away. This musical failed to deliver. The...More

So many other great shows to see on Broadway. Unless you REALLY REALLY love that music, skip this show and see something with a good story.

Hesitated to go as I had heard some negative comments, but was so glad that I went. Fantastic. If you love Motown music it is a must see. The singers/dancers were amazing. You'd swear young Michael Jackson was on that stage. Can't say enough about...More

My wife and had looked forward to this musical for so long, but it really disappointed us as it spent more time on Gordy's relationship with Diana Ross than the music. There were bits of Motown magic, but not worth the ticket price.

Excitement from start to finish. When in New York we like to experience a show which may not come down under ...I sincerely hope for my Aussie friends that Motown comes down under.

Well done review of Motown music from the early years to the 80's. The actual videos of events that occurred during those years added to the understanding of the play. The silence and then the cast performing "War" with videos of demonstrations was very moving...More
