I like the idea of it, but honestly from the end of the block I couldn't understand what it was saying.

I actually think it's pretty gorgeous. They used their space quite well. I can see the problem though with the banners/letters.

I really like it, especially the banners.

Whoever thought of putting those flags on the theater's fa├žade was pretty genius. Between "The Addams Family" cartoons, to "A Christmas Story" leg lamp, and now the MOTOWN name, it works beautifully.

I have no real interest in seeing this, but I think (from the pix) it looks pretty terrific.

They should of had them printed in reverse on the opposite sides.

True. I think the Lunt always has a pretty classy marquee.

However, that Marquis marquee right across from it is awful.

Looks like the Motown restaurant they had in Vegas.

Can someone tell me, is this a revue or is it a book musical with scenes, songs and characters? I understand there are characters (Diana Ross etc) but I was wondering was it just people singing different Motown songs?

It's Berry Gordy's story. So yes, it is a book musical
