An inspirational story worth a song and dance
In the style of what is known as a 'jukebox musical', Motown the Musical is composed of 66 songs from the Motown period, including a number of era-defining classics. Based on the life of Berry Gordy, who wrote the book for the musical based on his life, the story of Motown the Musical is an inspirational tale about dreaming big and taking risks. Back in the mid-1950s, a young Berry Gordy was working in the car factories of Detroit and dreaming about becoming as famous as his childhood hero, boxing star Joe Louis. Taking his cue from the social problems and racial tensions dividing his country, Gordy determined to unite America through a new genre of music with universal appeal. In 1957 he founded the Motown label, going on to sign artists such as The Jackson 5, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Mavin Gaye, and The Temptations. Together, Berry Gordy and his Motown artists had a lasting impact on music that spread the world over, creating music that is still celebrated today in award-winning shows like Motown the Musical.
