Photo Coverage: MOTOWN Launches Casting Search at Lunt Fontanne Theatre!

Earlier today, Motown The Musical hosted "Makin' It Motown"- a nationwide open call casting search for African American singers for both the flagship Broadway production and the upcoming national tour, at the Lunt Fontanne Theatre, home of the smash hit musical. BroadwayWorld was there for the special event and you can check out photos below!

MOTOWN THE MUSICAL is seeking African-American men and women, ages 20s-40s, with exceptional voices. Also seeking an African-American boy, age 8 to 13, to play young Michael Jackson / Berry Gordy / Stevie Wonder. No prior theatre experience is necessary. Featuring all the classics you love, Motown The Musical tells the story behind the hits as Diana, Smokey, Berry and the whole Motown family fight against the odds to create the soundtrack of change in America. Motown shattered barriers, shaped our lives and made us all move to the same beat. Now, experience the next electrifying chapter in the Motown story, Broadway's record-breaking smash hit Motown The Musical!

MOTOWN THE MUSICAL features arrangements and orchestrations by Tony Award nominee Ethan Popp (Rock of Ages), who also serves as musical supervisor for the 18 piece orchestra that reproduces the classic "Sound of Young America" for the Broadway stage, with co-orchestrations and additional arrangements by Tony Award nominee Bryan Crook ("Smash"), dance arrangements by Zane Mark (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and music direction by Joseph Joubert (Nice Work If You Can Get It).
