BWW TV: First Look at Highlights of Black Ensemble's THE STORY OF THE MARVELETTES

July 24
12:38 PM 2014

The World Premiere of The Story of The Marvelettes, Written by Reginald Williams, Directed by Rueben D. Echoles, runs July 18 - September 7, 2014. Check out a first look at highlights below!

Many people think that the most famous girl group to come out of Motown was The Supremes, but history says differently. It was five young teenagers from Inkster, Michigan who helped to propel Motown into national stardom and gave them their first "million-seller." The name of this dynamic group was The Marvelettes and their voices helped launch the company to prominence. Their name might not be as familiar as some of the other Motown legends, but the songs they made famous like "Don't Mess with Bill," "Hunter Gets Captured by the Game," "My Baby Must be a Magician," "Beechwood 45789," and "Please Mr. Postman" will guarantee their place in our musical memories forever. We're going to take you back to a dynamic era in history where the voices were more than just supreme - they were absolutely marvelous.

As with all Black Ensemble productions, the production features outstanding live music. The musicians are Music Director Robert Reddrick (drums), Justin Dillard (keyboard), Herb Walker (guitar) and Danny O'Conner (bass).
