Reasons for trip

We went 7.30 pm. show on Weds 7th Sept 2016. My friend and I grew up listening to Motown in the 60s and early 70s so we were thrilled to be going to see this show, but also a little wary in case it didn’t live up to our expectations. We should not have worried – it went way over any expectation! The whole cast should receive a standing ovation for their show – they put their heart soul and all their energy into bringing it alive. The guys playing Berry Gordy and Marvin Gaye have to be singled out for their amazing voices and excellent portrayals, the guy playing Stevie Wonder was just so entertaining, and the guy playing Smokey Robinson, what can I say – brilliant. Not to be forgotten the young boy playing part of the young Michael Jackson – a wonderful effort on his part. A fair bit of the story I already knew (I’ve been to Hitsville USA in Detroit not long ago -sang on the same spot as Diana Ross and the Supremes recorded Stop In The Name of Love – if you love Motown you gotta go there!) but some of it was news to me. Some of it was hitting nerves re the race relations problems back then and opened my eyes a fair bit. The whole show is amazing, the dancing energetic, the songs reviving wonderful memories – you just have to sing along, clap along, dance along – brilliant!!!
