“Best show I have seen!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Brilliant show, cannot wait until it hits London's west end as will be seeing it again.
If you are a fan of Motown or musical theatre then you will love it. The longest standing ovation I have ever seen!

“Motown, don't miss it!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

We loved it. We were familiar with all the songs; the actors/singers were superb. Stage, scenery, orchestra all contributed to a great evening.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Great story, great performance. Not to be missed. We will be back!
Recommend to anyone that grew up in the Motown era they do the same.
And for those that didn't you will see what you missed but can still enjoy.

“Great voices, awesome pit band, interesting story”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Had the opportunity to catch the Sunday matinee of Motown, and was blown away by the music. Brought us back to another time in our lives. Loved how each actor tried to be true to the original artist. I also was amazed at the quality of a couple understudies that did the Sunday afternoon show. They could be leads in other shows. The pit band was very energetic, and lively, but still able to play tight enough that they were always complementing the folks on stage, but not overpowering them, or leading them. Very impressive musicianship.

The theater is well maintained, and half price tix from TKTS saved enough for a nice dinner afterward!
