Bank of America Broadway in Fort Lauderdale and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts presents the legendary smash-hit of Motown the Musical. The story of Berry Gordy’s great American dream comes to life on stage as it captivates hearts and penetrates the souls of every single audience member in attendance.
The founder of Motown launched the careers of our generation’s most memorable musical artists that included the likes of the Supremes, Diana Ross, The Jackson 5, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson, and Marvin Gaye. Berry Gordy and Motown crushed barriers that separated people from racially diverse backgrounds, and united them through what he knew would do it best, music.
This smash-hit musical tells a story that will have you singing and dancing in your seat to some of the greatest songs of all time. The beautiful Allison Semmes who plays Diana Ross, melted everyone’s hearts with her astounding voice and on-stage presence. Jesse Nager plays the essential comedic relief while singing his heart out playing the role of Smokey Robinson. Clifton Oliver is Berry Gordy himself on-stage, and Leon Outlaw Jr.’s performance as a young Michael Jackson is impeccable. Last but not least, Marvin Gaye takes over Jarran Muse’s soul right before your eyes. Get ready to clap your hands, tap your feet, and sing along with an entire cast that is full of life and simply amazing!
Motown The Musical is the Best Musical of 2015 and a nostalgic journey you do not want to miss. Playing at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts now until March 8, 2015.
