Motown The Musical

Director: Charles Randolph-Wright; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Cedric Neal, Lucy St Louis, Obioma Ugoala, Sifiso Mazibuko, Nana Agyemanbediako, Raphael Higgins-Humes, Rio Myers, Tumo Reetsang

Motown The Musical tells the story of the legendary Berry Gordy, who borrowed 800 dollars from his family and turned it into the all-conquering Motown music label.

The story begins in 1983, during Motown's 25th anniversary celebrations, as Berry is looking back fondly on some of the careers that he helped to launch: everyone from Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye to Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Diana Ross.

He also explains that the Viet Nam war looming, and America in the midst of a cultural revolution, how he had to fight tooth and nail to break down the barriers and take the music world by storm.

The soundtrack includes classic songs like My Girl, What's Going On, Dancing in the Street and I Heard It Through The Grapevine.
