THE SONGS. THE SOUND. THE STORY.
Motown follows the story of Berry Gordy and the creation of Motown Records. The story begins on the evening of the 25th anniversary of the music records empire in 1983, with Berry reflecting upon his journey so far and career.
Berry recalls the times when he was a kid and dreamt of one day making people as happy and proud as his childhood hero, the boxer Joe Louis.
Having grown into a talented adult, inspired by his passion of music and with hopes of ending the racial division in the music industry, Berry borrowed $800 from his family, went from featherweight boxer to heavyweight music mogul, discovering and launching the careers of Diana Ross and the Supremes, Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Marvin Gaye and many more.
Playing at the Shaftesbury Theatre and featuring an eighteen-piece live orchestra, playing 50 Motown tracks including "My Girl", "Dancing In The Street", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", Motown The Musical is a musical sensation with real soul - Book your tickets today!
We absolutely enjoyed the show and all the songs we grew up listening to and still do. Very entertaining, great cast with great voices. Thoroughly enjoyed.
My favourite music has always been Tamla Motown. For people like me, please go & see this show, excellent presentation, artists & music. Sound quality very good. Location excellent, London is superb!
Great show, great location, but boy did we want to dance. Fantastic performance.
Overall an excellent show and very entertaining.
Had the absolute best time. I didn’t know what the show was about which was a lovely surprise when we watched it. Classic hits that we sang along to. Brilliant show
Better than you could ever imagine! The story was amazing The dancing and singers were marvelous!
What a brilliant afternoon I had watching this musical, and even though I was by myself, it didn't matter!
My wife and I attended during our honeymoon celebrations in London. Very classy production, music and choreography we’re on point. Talented cast and a well written, well produced tribute to Motown. 110% recommend people get along ng to see it, very happy we went. Artie & Maita PAUL
A powerful, rich and high energy production, which told an incredible story of a well loved music genre.
Fantastic 2rd time I seen it and this time we had how seats upgraded thank you
I booked this show as a birthday gift for my sister as we were visiting London from Western Australia. We both enjoyed the high calibre performances of the artists and the music performed by the live orchestra was amazing. Great music, costumes and high energy made for a great night out.
Not the best show we have seen. Music brought back lots of memories but performances were lacking something.
The show was excellent from start to finish. The acting, singing, stage presence and dancing was superb. The songs brought back memories and the audience participated really well. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Went to the 2.30pm performance & it was absolutely amazing,brilliant & fantastic !! Would highly recommend it !! Want to go again
Had a fantastic evening!! 💗
Wow! This was one of the best musicals I have seen. All of the performers gave 100% and their vocal prowess was stunning. Jay Perry who played a Berry Gordy was phenomenal as were the other members of the cast. Special mention to the lad who played a young Michael Jackson - a star in the making. Go see it now!
Gosh loved everything about it...the costumes, the Motown story woven in and the music 💗💖
Absolutely incredible! The actors are out of this world and the music was brilliant. I've never enjoyed a musical this much in my life and I've seen a fair few!
Had a great night, the performers were fantastic especially Michael Jackson, a star is born. Diana Ross was perfect and Berry Gordy was magnificent. Would watch it again. Make it a date night with your other half and you wont fail to impress.
Loved the show would definitely recommend, but don’t sit in the grand circle as seats were uncomfortable
Brilliant from the start, every one of the cast were great and looked like they were enjoying themselves the same as the visitors. Must go and see
Absolutely brilliant. Cast were superb. Excellent singing and acting. Staff very welcoming.
The most glorious evening in the theatre! I loved every minute! Left the theatre dancing with fabulous Motown songs going round in my head. Brilliant dancing and sublime performances from the three leads: Barry Gordey, Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye.
A fantastic, energetic and fun show with all the Motown favorite hits and artists, very capably portrayed and performed by the talented cast. Orchestra rocked ! You will have a blast !!!
It was one of the most amazing theatre shows I have seen. Such a wonderful story line not a second went by that was boring!
A wonderful show in a lovely theatre.
What a great cast that got an otherwise quiet audience up on their feet rocking and singing by the end. Well done London.
Great show we loved it.
We had a wonderful night. Great cast and performances.
The second time I’ve seen this. It’s incredible, and a must see. My favourite show of all time.
We really enjoyed the show. The music was sublime, the costumes were beautiful and it was a lovely show
Absolutely brilliant show. The singing was exceptional like you were listening to the original artists.
This is 'THE PLAY' i had a great time, the casts are actually playing and enjoying themselves and it's really infectious. The set is beautiful, the customs are great, the casts have studied their characters and I could see little micheal Jackson as MJ himself. I will watch this play again and just to say since I left, I have been telling everyone who cares to hear about it. Great play guys, very infectious, you made my night out worth the while. Thank you
Brilliant from start to end!!
Great! Great singing, dancing by the cast and loved the costumes. Very enjoyable show.
Fantastic Shirley Bassey and Berry Gordy, just a shame you can’t sing along to these amazing songs
Couldn’t have enjoyed a musical more. Every cast. member excelled

Booking was easy and fast. Picket up the tickets on site without any issues. Show was absolutely fantastic. Cast and music were brilliant. Definitely recommend this feel-good night out
Booked this as a birthday treat for myself along with my mum and partner. Couldn’t have had a better birthday evening! We all had an amazing evening and was one of the best shows I’ve seen. The cast were incredible, the storyline was a lot more in depth and touching than I thought it would be and I highly recommend anyone of any age to go and see this show.
Stage set up was great and the music, what can I say, it was just the best ever
Singers were amazing dancing was amazing really good atmosphere. Little bit to much focus on Diana Ross would of liked a few more songs from other artists. But other than that it was a really good night have recommended it to everyone !
