Motown the Musical USA National Tour Reviews and Dates

Tour 2016 – 2017 Reviews and Dates

 

Motown: The Musical is a jukebox musical. The story revolves around the early days of Motown and Berry Gordy’s romance with Diana Ross. The musical has a book by Berry Gordy, based on his 1994 autobiography, To Be Loved: The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown. The music and lyrics are from the Motown catalog.

In 1983 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium recording stars are gathered to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Motown Records. In a flashback, in Detroit, Michigan the young Berry Gordy watches the neighbors dancing. In 1957, the adult Berry forms his own record label, and begins to make life-long friends with recording artists/singers such as Marvin Gaye and Smoky Robinson. Berry discovers the Supremes and Diana Ross, among many others.
