Motown The Musical


A blistering success on Broadway, the record-breaking Motown The Musical is finally on its way to London. Opening at the Shaftesbury Theatre in February 2016, this rapturous jukebox musical offers up the unforgettable hits and extraordinary history of Motown.

Back in 1959, ex-featherweight boxer and now-legendary record producer Berry Gordy had nothing more than a borrowed $800 in his pocket and a life-changing beat in his head. But that was enough. The founder of the Motown record label, Gordy went on to discover the artists that would transform American music and America itself.

Featuring over 40 songs by Motown legends such as Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and Michael Jackson, Motown the Musical is a scorching joyride through the songs and stories of the record label that changed it all.

With Berry Gordy himself providing the book and an 18-piece orchestra belting out a dazzling playlist of hits, including ‘Dancing In The Street’, ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ and ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’, Motown the Musical is pure bliss.

Sure to transport its smash hit status from Broadway to the West End, book your Motown the Musical tickets today!
