Motown the Musical Coming to Chicago

Are you a fan of Motown? Do you love listening to Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye? If you answered "yes" to these questions, then you have to see Motown the Musical, and guess what? You're in luck. The show is coming to Chicago, so get your Chicago Tickets while you can.

Plot

Motown the Musical is about Berry Gordy, the founder of Motown. The musical takes you through Gordy's life, starting as a featherweight boxer all the way to his success as a music mogul that launched the careers of Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and so many more. Best of all, fans get to enjoy listening to the talented cast as they sing some of Motown's most popular songs, while the glamorous costumes and stage setup brings you back in time making you feel like you are a part of the unfolding magic of a new era of music.

Schedule

To account for the popularity of the show, the Oriental Theater in Chicago, Illinois is hosting close to 100 showings of Motown the Musical. Don't miss this opportunity to experience Motown like it has never been experienced before -- unless of course you were actually part of Motown back then -- and get your Motown the Musical Chicago tickets as soon as possible!

Trivia

Did you know that Berry Gordy started Motown Record Company in 1959 using an $800 loan from his family? Before long, Motown became the most successful African-American owned business in the US. All that hard work showed quickly, too, as "Please Mr. Postman" by the Marvelettes was the first Motown song to reach Billboard's Top 100.

Cast

One of the best things about this production is the amazingly talented cast. A highlight of the cast includes:

Brandon Victor Dixon (playing the role of Berry Gordy) was nominated for a Tony Award for his performance as Harpo in The Color Purple, received an Ovation nomination for his performance as Ray Charles in Ray Charles Live and has appeared in numerous other television shows and theatrical productions.

Krystal Joy Brown (playing the role of Diana Ross), the novelist, songwriter and actress received a Fred Astaire nomination for her role in Leap of Faith and has appeared in numerous television and stage productions, including Hair and Little Shop of Horrors.

Charl Brown (playing the role of Smokey Robinson) was nominated the 2013 Tony Award for the Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his role playing Barry Belson in the Jersey Boys. He has also appeared in many other productions, including Jesus Christ Superstar and Chorus Line.

Bryan Terrell Clark (playing the role of Marvin Gaye) is an actor/singer/songwriter/host who graduated from Yale School of Drama. He has appeared in the television shows CSI New York and The Unit, and has musically performed with artists such as Ciara, Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle.

Original Author

Motown the Musical was written by none other than Berry Gordy himself. Who better than him to take us back to the beginnings and through the history of Motown!

Producers

A show of this magnitude wouldn't be possible without the extensive experience of it's two producers, Kevin McCollum and Doug Morris. Kevin McCollum has recieved three Tony Awards and is on the Board of Governors of the Broadway League. Doug Morris is the Chief Executive Officer of Sony Music Entertainment and is the founder of VEVO. He has also worked with some of the most influential people in musical history, including Stevie Nicks, Bette Midler and Stevie Wonder.
