Motown the Musical opened at the Academy of Music last Tuesday evening. The show runs now through Sunday, June 11th and it’s got OVER 50 SONGS in it. All of your favorite Motown songs are featured and in such a fun way. With Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, The Jackson Five (with a killer young Michael Jackson) and more, the show tells the story of Berry Gordy Jr.s life and the start of Motown Records with all of the amazing artists on the legendary label. It’s a blast and the talent is incredible, especially the Berry Gordy character, played by Chester Gregory. The show is filled with stars, but somehow he still stands out. Listen as Kristen (gushes) speaks with Gregory about the show and his fantastic performance, then go see the show. You’ll love it. Buy tickets HERE.
