Finally! Berry Gordy & Motown Are Headed To Broadway!!!!

Berry Gordy is going to take Motown to Broadway!

The show based on Gordy’s life is indeed still in motion, with new announcements stating that the musical will feature music hits by the likes of Diana Ross and the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson, among others; also the Musical will open on Broadway in spring 2013 at a Nederlander theater to be announced, produced by Kevin McCollum (producer of such shows as Rent, Avenue Q and In the Heights – all 3 Tony Award-winning musicals by the way, so we could say that Gordy’s work is in good hands here), Sony Music Entertainment chairman and CEO Doug Morris, and of course Gordy himself, with Charles Randolph-Wright (an African American by the way, who has his own extensive background as a writer, director, producer for film, TV and theater) directing.

Broadway is the pinnacle of live theater and provides a challenging and exciting opportunity to tell my story and share the magic of Motown,“- Berry Gordy.
