Berry Gordy's Motown Troupers Revel in Music History

Based on his 1995 memoir "To Be Loved: The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown," Berry Gordy’s Motown: The Musical charts his rise to the top of a Detroit-based record empire that defined the music of the 1960s. Charles Randolph-Wright directs the new Broadway show, which stars Brandon Victor Dixon as Gordy, Valisa Lekae as Diana Ross, Charl Brown as Smokey Robinson and Bryan Terrell Clark as Marvin Gaye. The production features classic Motown hits as well as several new songs written by Gordy. Here, cast and creatives meet the press to chat about constructing a world that echoes real life. Watch a musical preview from the show.
