Best of all, this is the real story of Berry Gordy and Motown Records in all their glory. This is a MUST see!!!! My mum and I visited this show for her birthday and it was definitely worth the wait. The actors and actresses were amazing. The story was so cleverly put together. There was some audience participation which I felt added a little something to the show. The costumes were beautiful and we couldn't stop singing along to every song. Would highly recommend it and will definitely be seeing it again.
I lived through the birth of Motown, but went to the show with my two daughters who are in their early forties.

It appealed to us all and I'm sure it was enjoyed by the younger people in the audience too. Such a great show, loved the music, it brought memories of a time when music was great. All the actors were brilliant, and the singing excellent, the young lad who played the young Michael Jackson, was amazing. If you want a real feel good show, this is a must.
As we were walking out, all you could hear was people say how brilliant the show was. I definitely will be going to see it again. This show will appeal to anyone that has ever listened to music. You don't need to know Motown history. There's so much of this popular soul music threaded through current day musical culture that came from Motown.
I was 3 rows back in the stalls and could really feel the energy from the actors. The audience spontaneously whooped and cheered when historical past legends appeared and performed.
Some of the actors could really sing, notably Smokey Robinson. The theatre is beautiful and historic, is somewhat cramped by today's standards. Go, enjoy the show, leave and feel joyous. A very good show and well acted I just think everyone worked so hard to make it special thanks.
How can this even be possible? Amazing story, music,acting and theatre made it a overall brilliant experience. Loved this show all the artists were of exceptional standard, it was like a ray of sunshine on a miserable cold January afternoon, proper feel good show. Can not fault it in anyway. The only downside was the theatre was a tad cold coats needed throughout the performance. Reviewed on 01 February by Ines , Paris , France.

Great show - toilet situation awful The show was amazing, the seats were not great row w in the stalls because of the low roof not all of the stage was visable - definitely go upper circle if going The toilet situation is AWFUL, the close access to the main theatre so there are just a couple in the staircases - you have to queue down the stairs to wait and we nearly missed the second part because the queues were so long.
