Broadway’s latest smash hit, Motown The Musical, will be hitting the road starting April 2014 according to its website. That’s right the show that hasn’t had a non sold out show since beginning previews will have you doing the watusi and the boogaloo in a theatre near you. Its first stop will be the Oriental Theatre in Chicago.
It’s billed as the following: “Motown The Musical is the real story of the one-of-a-kind sound that hit the airwaves in 1959 and changed our culture forever. This exhilarating show charts Motown founder Berry Gordy’s incredible journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and so many more. Featuring all the classics you love, Motown The Musical tells the story behind the hits as Diana, Smokey, Berry and the whole Motown family fight against the odds to create the soundtrack that changed America. Motown shattered barriers, shaped our lives and made us all move to the same beat. Now, it finally comes to the Broadway stage in the world premiere of Motown The Musical“.
