Motown The Musical

London's theatreland is holding its breath until spring 2016 when the long-awaited Broadway smash musical Motown the Musical comes to the capital to play at the stunning Shaftesbury Theatre. With music from the legendary Motown record label back-catalogue and a best-selling book by the record label's founder himself, the ridiculously talented Berry Gordy, it's a not-to-be-missed feast of sweet soul music at its heartwarming, dancing-in-your-seats best. Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, the musical is based on the brilliant book To Be Loved: The Music, The Magic, The Memories of Motown by Gordy himself.

The show features a brilliant eighteen piece orchestra playing fifty or more unforgettable Motown tracks with the help of a bunch of seriously talented dancers and singers. The result is a soul sensation you won't want to miss, whether you're a keen Northern Soul fan or just adore soul music at its very best. Expect unforgettable tracks like Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, All Night Long, I’ll Be There, Dancing In The Street, Stop! In The Name Of Love, My Girl, I Heard It Through The Grapevine and For Once In My Life, and you won't be disappointed. You'll also love the fascinating story of the record label itself, beautifully interwoven with an endless stream of soul classics. Epic!
