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!
Fantastic show what a blast from the past. Fantastic singing and dancing. Hugely enjoyable.
My third time seeing this show. It’s foot tappingly brilliant from start to finish.
Great songs, moving story and inspirational characters
Fab enjoyed every minute
Had the best night, well worth a visit people.
Awesome, fantastic, none stop music 🎶 and dancing 💃🏽 🕺well worth watching and paying for great seats. All seats have plenty of leg room.
Fantastic show and all the cast are amazing
Excellent show! Speakers could have been a bit loulder in our seats?! And possibly more of the Jackson 5 songs
Great show really enjoyed it
A group of 25 of us went to see Motown the Musical for my friends 4oth Birthday celebrations. Matinee showing on a Saturday - it was absolutely awesome. The vocals were out of this world and the cast were so talented. Very engaging and would watch it again. A big thumbs up and recommend it.
It’s the worst show I’ve ever been to The characters mimed during the show The staff are so rude and unhelpful Would not recommend any one to go A wast of £95 a ticket Would have been better to go to a pub and listen to the jukebox
I loved the show, there wasn’t much of a storyline just teams of people jumping in and singing, which was amazing I have to say. My biggest criticism is that the music was so loud you could hardly hear the singing, they were drowned out (sadly).
Me and my wife really enjoyed the show brought back memories
Amazing cast, music, background, choreography, vocals, costume, historical accuracy and energy. Will definitely watch again.
Beautifully captured the soul of Motown with foot-tapping music and stellar performances to accompany it
The show was fantastic and some of the cast members were incredible. The guy who played Marvin Gaye ( Carl Spencer) was incredible , his voice was just stunning. Next time I am in London I will go to see again.
What a performance, the whole cast were fantastic. Would highly recommend any true music fan to see this show.
Superb show every bit of it from beginning to the end. The music and singers were wonderful such amazing voices. I loved the part at the end when everyone was able to get up and sing along, Would recommend this show to everyone going to get tickets for my daughter and her husband to go and see it. well done to all
Was fab only criticism really uncomfortable seats no leg room at all
A must see performance! Very enjoyable afternoon.
Cast were excellent,especially Diana Ross & the young michael Jackson. Surprised some people were let in late,after the start & disturbing others enjoying the show.seats a bit cramped especially for myself with long legs.overall an excellent show. Would recommend to others. Well done cast,you should be proud of yourselves.
Needed a bit of up beat, as at times it was dull. And very disappointed with the sitting as paid far too much money for the sits we got . Over all not a very good start to the evening
Good vibes only
The storyline was effectively the story of Motown and Berry Gordy, using the opportunity to provide an excellent concert of Motown hits. Similar to the Buddy Holly and Glenn Miller stories we had seen previously. Singing and dancing was great and knew most of the songs.
It was a really good performance which I will remember for some time to come Had me singing all the classics all the way home.
Excellent could not have had a better birthday.
Whole of Motown was Brilliant.,but could have seen more of Michael Jackson...in his later life.
Emotional history of a great period in music which reviewed my adolescence. Talented cast that brought to life the Detroit sound of the 60s and 70s. Well done!
All ages at the performance, one of the best shows, if not the best, we have seen this year, will go again. Thank you The Box Office
My partner and I went last night and really enjoyed the show. Would go and see it again.
Fantastic production, great venue, friendly helpful staff, highly recommend.
Fantastic singers and dancers. Excellent. orchestra and band. Brought back many memories. Did not get 5 stars because stage sets lacked wow factor. Would still recommend if you like Motown and do not know the story.
Beautiful costume and wonderful songs
I was absolutely astonished on the performance absolutely amazing lovely staff and I could not be more happy with the service
A very good show,musicaly spot on,especialy the actor who played Marvin Gaye
I bought the tickets as part of a birthday present the show was amazing the music and the artists were great. Very vibrant and positive musical. We enjoyed from start to the end.
So disappointed. So wanted to see this production but bought tickets for Saturday 3 November Matinee and after sitting for an hour waiting for it to start, it was eventually cancelled for technical reasons. Couldnt be helped, no ones fault, but sooo disappointed. Will try again to book.
So pleased I got tickets for this show. It was brilliant and I was blown away by the talent and superb voices of the performers. Motown lives on
Brilliant show from start to finish. If you like music you will love Motown the musical.
Great night out! Very talented artists. Highly recommend.
Sadly it never took place because of a sound problem. These things happen I guess, although I am not aware of similar and expect checks to take place well in advance, but sadly the theatre was very poor at communicating with the audience.
Thoroughly enjoyed the show, took us right back to that time and evoked some lovely memories for us Singing was brilliant and the story line was moving
Fantastic experience watching the show, a great present for my Aunts birthday!
Abdolutely brilliant show and thouroughly enjoyed it
The singing and dancing were second to none. Fantastic entertainment with a very versatile cast.
Amazing performances from all the cast would go and see it again learn so much about mototown xx
What an amazing show! Everybody in the show was brilliant, the audience were fantastic too one person shine out and it was the young lad who played Micheal Jackson fantastic talent actor for such a young age!!
Motown tells the story brilliantly of how the label came about and some of the characters involved. The singers/characters were as excellent as you would expect from a west end production. Motown doesnt shy away from the racial conflict of the day and honestly depicts the black musicians struggle to be recognised as equal with the white.
