The show itself was ok but our complaint was the theatre itself. Very hot, seating near the back in the stalls are all on one level so lots of people like us were not able to see at all. I spent the whole evening dodging the very tall man in front to try and see which made the lady behind me quite angry. It spoilt our expensive evening. We won't visit this theatre again
Went to the Saturday evening performance and I wasnt disappointed. I loved it.
Not at all like the Motown I remember. Poor imitation, although I suppose only the Four Tops and Diana Ross et al themselves could recreate the excitement of the Motown sound of the 60's. Thought the theatre was extremely uncomfortable also - not a good experience!
THE START OF THE SHOW WAS BRILLIANT BUT WE WERE ASKED TO LEAVE BECAUSE AS WE HAD NO ONE BEHIND US WE STARTED TO DANCE, WE WERE TOLD TO SIT DOWN. fOUR GIRLS TO THE RIGHT OF US WERE TRYING TO SIT ON TOP OF CHAIRS MAKING A NOICE AND HAD THE CHEEK TO COMPLAIN ABOUT US. WE WERE NOT GIVEN A CHANCE. WE SAW OTHER PEOPLE BEING ASKED TO LEAVE.IT WAS A COMPLETE JOKE AND A WASTE OF MONEY.
Didn't like the show one bit. No story and very amateurish.
I thought the show was fantastic Gordy, Marvin and Michael Jackson knocked it out the park and the dancing to 'War' was fantastic. But agree with the others theatre is awful. Awful seats very hot no air conditioning and trying to get drinks was a nightmare. The amount of money paid by people deserves more comfort. Move Motown to a better theatre!!!
went to see the show on 15th Oct. Very average and wouldn't want to go and see it again. Sound was poor and singing/acting and story very average.
Went and saw what I consider to be the Best Motown Story Live Ever.yes I also think the Grand Circle is to cramped and there is a jobs worth of a member of staff who shouts at anybody who goes near the front rail and anybody who have been knows there is no room what so ever.I was glad at half time to be able to stretch my legs a little only to be shouted at by this jobs worth.
Getting back to the Show it's Fantastic Brilliant Voices and Fantastic Individual Performancies,Young Micheal Jackson is a Brilliant Talent for the Future..Motown Lovers Go and see it.
The show was out of this world if you havent seen the show you are missing something brilliant.
Thought the show was very good, there was a lot that I expected in there that wasn't but obviously limited time. As others have said, the Shaftsbury theatre was awful, cramped, unbearably hot, so much so that it really did detract from our enjoyment of the show, not sure I would go back . I really think they need to look at some sort of ventilation.
