Motown The Musical

A Celebration of the Music that Transformed America

“MORE THAN A BROADWAY SHOW. A CELEBRATION OF MUSIC THAT TRANSFORMED AMERICA!”

CBS Sunday Morning

It began as one man's story… became everyone's music… and is now Broadway's musical. MOTOWN THE MUSICAL is the true American dream story of Motown founder Berry Gordy’s journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson and many more. Motown shattered barriers, shaped our lives and made us all move to the same beat. Featuring classic songs such as “My Girl” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” experience the story behind the music in the record-breaking smash hit MOTOWN THE MUSICAL!

  • Broadway.com says;
    • Is Motown: The Musical Good for Kids?
    • Motown is an entertaining show for the whole family. Children will eat up the show’s energetic dance numbers and non-stop music, although parents should be aware that the show contains a fleeting curse word, references to war and violence, and some mild sexual innuendo in a bedroom scene between Berry Gordy and Diana Ross.
       
  • DPAC offers a diverse selection of entertainment. Not all productions will appeal to or be appropriate for every guest or for all ages.
