The unique sound of Motown comes to Broadway in this exciting new show, which documents the musical revolution launched by legendary record producer Berry Gordy. Employing songs from the Motown catalogue and a book by Gordy himself, the musical follows the rise of the iconic R&B label from 1959 as Diana Ross becomes an international sensation, Smokey Robinson heads up the Miracles, and Gordy’s talented artists become mainstream headliners. Songs that have become a part of the American consciousness, from giants like the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, and Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, are all here in one memorable evening.
“For years, people have said if I didn’t do something on Broadway, I should see a psychiatrist,” Gordy said at a sneak preview of the show. “So I’m here.”
The cast is headed by Tony nominee Brandon Victor Dixon (The Color Purple
) as Gordy and Valisia LeKae as Diana Ross. Charles Randolph-Wright (author of the acclaimed play Blue) directs. “It’s amazing to work with Mr. Gordy; he knows more about entertainment than all of us combined,” says Randolph-Wright. Gordy is also producing along with Tony winner Kevin McCollum (Rent, Avenue Q, In the Heights
), and Sony Music CEO Doug Morris. A nationwide casting tour will include visits to Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, New York City and Detroit, the home of Motown.
Two hours and 45 minutes (one intermission)
