Disappointing, limited range of songs and artists. Not so much a musical as a political account of old time colour prejudice. Nobody condones what happened there so many years ago but it was not what I went to see. Many of the audience found it embarrassing and a number did not return after the interval.

I thoroughly enjoyed the show

Was a little disappointed not enough songs for me. Would have enjoyed a lot more songs from Smokie Robinson and all the other artists the show featured. A lot of money for an average show. The theatre is the most uncomfortable theatre I have ever been in. The seats were cramped no leg room a rip off for the price we paid.

Fantastic show full of energy and a real trip down memory lane!

Looking so forward to this show I love Motown music but what a disappointment, the sound was terrible we couldn't catch the end of conversations. The 1st half was so flat, some of the dancers were out of time, found it really boring.

The theatre was so hot it was unbearable uncomfortable seats with no leg room would not recommend this show.
