A Sneak Peek At The Sounds Of Motown The Musical

Founded in 1960 by songwriter Berry Gordy, Detroit's Motown Records primed such iconic acts as Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye and the Jackson 5 for music industry glory — despite the racially turbulent era. Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, with book by Gordy himself, Motown: The Musical uses the songs of the legendary Motown catalogue to chart the rise of the music mogul and the stars he created. Here, the cast runs through classics "Do You Love Me," "My Girl" and "I Want You Back" for a recent media day. See the Playbill story on the production, which begins previews March 11 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
