Motown: The Musical has affectionately become known as Broadway’s Musical. The production follows Motown founder Berry Gordy as he transforms from boxer to music mogul. Gordy, of course, helped launch the careers of future stars such as Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, and most notably, Michael Jackson.
Chronicling the extraordinary life and times of Berry Gordy from his days as a boxer to his role as star-maker, get ready for “Motown: The Musical.” With all the cherished hits you crave and an outrageously entertaining peek behind the curtain, this is an absolute must-see. You’ll get your fair share of fan favorites like Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and My Girl, but what might be most captivating is the look into the lives of the biggest Motown stars as they balance life and emerging stardom.
Brandon Victor Dixon puts in a magical performance as Berry Gordy. The lead previously earned a Tony Award for his work in The Color Purple, where he was named Best Featured Actor. He also holds the awesome distinction of playing Simba in The Lion King. Diana Ross is matched almost identically by Krystal Joy Brown, who stars in Big Fish. You’ll also love Bryan Terrell Clark’s performance as the intriguing Marvin Gaye.
