Motown the Musical | London

It began as one man’s story…became everyone’s music…and is now London’s hottest new show. Motown The Musical follows the legendary career of Berry Gordy and the creation of his musical empire, Motown Records. The story begins in 1983, on the evening of the 25th anniversary celebration of Motown, and Berry Gordy is looking back on his career. Inspired by his childhood hero, black American boxer Joe Louis, the young Berry dreams big, hoping one day to make people as happy and proud. After a few years on Detroit’s automobile assembly line he sets his sights on bringing a socially charged, racially divided country together with music. With an $800 loan from his family, Berry founds a music-making factory. Motown is born!

Motown the musical tells the thrilling tale of the man who broke barriers and fought against the odds to define the sound of a generation – complete with the ups and downs of the personal relationships, the professional struggles, and – of course – the music that made history.

Motown the Musical cast members include Cedric Neal as Berry Gordy, Lucy St Louis as Diana Ross, Obioma Ugoala as Smokey Robinson, and Sifiso Mazibuko as Marvin Gaye.
