All You Need to Get By! Dates Announced for London's Motown the Musical

Hail to the beat! We now have dates for the previously reported West End production of Motown the Musical at the Shaftesbury Theatre. The show is set to begin previews on February 11, 2016 and officially open on March 8. Casting will be announced soon.

Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright and featuring a book by Motown founder Berry Gordy, Motown The Musical's score includes over 50 beloved hits from the Motown catalogue. The show tells the story of Gordy’s rise from small-town dreamer to big-time record mogul.

The Broadway production played its final performance on January 18 at the Lunt Fontanne Theatre to make way for Finding Neverland. Motown intends to return to the Great White Way in summer 2016 at a Nederlander theater to be announced.
