Comments
Motown: The Musical is the story of record producer Berry Gordy, the history of the record label that launched the careers of some of the greatest Black pop music artists, and the style of music that, from 1960 to 1980, came to define an era. It opened on Broadway in 2013 and played until 2015. The touring production played the Princess of Wales Theatre in September 2015. Like the Broadway production it was a sold-out success and returned for an encore engagement in 2018. The musical was also produced in London and in many other cities around the world.
