Hailed as a “musically vibrant trip back to the glory days of Detroit,” Motown the Musical tells the story of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, who launched countless careers and shaped a genre that forever changed the American musical landscape. Although it employs Gordy as a through-line, the musical truly shines through the cast’s portrayals of Motown icons, ranging from Diana Ross to a young Michael Jackson. Theater-goers seeking a nostalgic evening awash in Motown’s greatest hits will get more than their money’s worth — this national tour packs in 40-plus numbers.
