If you always love to listen to Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye, this show is for you! Motown The Musical on Broadway will take you back to the very beginning of the Motown Records and will tell you all the secrets of Berry Gordy’s successful career.
This 2 hours 45 mn musical plays live no less than 60 songs and all the actors will make you believe that you are listening to the real stars of the Soul music as the cast is extremely talented.
This musical is more than a show, it is a live concert of the most famous singers of the 60’s and 70’s and listening to Michael Jackson singing “I want you back” and “I’ll be there” is a chance that you will not have twice. The very young actor playing Michael Jackson looks and sounds so much like him that it is hard to keep in mind that we are in 2014…
Diana Ross is in the show almost from the beginning to the end and she will amaze you by her beauty and her so unique voice. At some point during the musical, she even comes down to speak with the audience, she walks through the rows and choose a person to come on the stage with her and sing with her, just like she used to do in her real concerts!
You will also learn that Marvin Gaye was a rebel who never wanted anyone to decide which songs he would or wouldn’t sing. We all know that this very handsome man was very seductive but with Motown The Musical, we are witness of real arguments he used to have with Berry Gordy, who wanted him to simply be good looking and to avoid singing against racism and all kind of injustice. You will of course listen to one of its most heart braking song “What’s going on” and there is no doubt that it will give you shivers.
