It was the best show I ever saw better then Vegas shows. The entire cast was excellent wonderful voices, especially the young boy that sang Michael. The music was sensational Motown at its best. The show truly captured an iconic time in music and history, it had liberal politics but that is what happen which was a part of history. No one of the boomer generation should miss this show! Very well done. I wanted to add I am a white person that enjoyed the true historic part.

Probably the most disappointing evening I have spent in any theatre anywhere ever. Choice of songs at times bizarre, execution am dram standard,story line very very disjointed and biased towards the Berry Gordy appreciation society. If I thought I could get my money back, I would ask

We were disappointed with the lack of good songs and thought the singers were miming the words at times. This show didn’t live up to the hype and recommendations and lacked a story line.

This musical is Super! I am visiting from The Boston area and this is a MUST SEE show. From beginning to end I was singing along to all of the great Motown songs. Instead of "Dancing in the Streets", I was " Dancing in My Seat". There are some surprises. The entire cast and band were Fantastic!

Show was fantastic - theatre staff and atmosphere was horrendous. 16 of us ladies went and were frowned upon for trying to enjoy the music - unless on cue do not sway or smile as you will be told to tone it down by 20% or you will have to leave (exact words). Disgusting to be treated like this at a show that is about music. I have been told that in Cardiff showing (where I live) the people who attended had to take their shoes off as they danced so much their feet hurt!!

We saw the show llast night and thought it was absolutely fantastic. Loved it from beginning to end and would love to see it again. Definitely makes you want to dance and sing from start to finish. It was my daughter's birthday and Stevie Wonder singing "Happy Birthday" really made her night. Some parts of the show were pretty moving and tearful, but in the nicest way. Audience participation was great and they all appeared to be loving it too. All the actors/singers where amazing. A BIG thank you to all.

Wished I'd saved my money.!

Nothing I'd want to see again,motown was more than Ross whos song were the only ones sung with more than one verse

A few lines of other artists songs was less than entertaining.
