And, if you're anything like me, you too will be easily swept up by its visual and musical loveliness and its endearing, sweet love story.The Broadway musical's Equity National Tour---now in its last weeks---has finally winded itself back to So.

BWW Review: MOTOWN: THE MUSICAL Is a Treat For The Eyes and EarsBWW Review: MOTOWN: THE MUSICAL Is a Treat For The Eyes and Ears
by Frank Benge - Apr 27, 2016

MOTOWN: THE MUSICAL is a jukebox musical that premiered on Broadway in April 2013, receiving four Tony Award nominations. Based on Berry Gordy's 1994 autobiography To Be Loved: The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown, it tells the story of how he founded and ran the Motown record label. It also touches on his relationships with Diana Ross (Allison Semmes), Marvin Gaye (Jarran Muse), and Smokey Robinson (Jesse Nager). Digging deep into the Motown catalog, the show contains over 60 songs. With that many songs one would expect a pretty thin book; however, by wisely placing most of the focus on Gordy (Chester Gregory) and Ross' relationship and the rise and fall of Motown, we are given a compelling portrait of both Gordy and the music industry. MOTOWN: THE MUSICAL is a celebration of the Motown sound… that sound that joined black and white America in ways nothing else has equaled before or since...that magical period in our past when we were invited to go dancing in the street to a brand new beat.

The longest running musical in the world The Fantasticks is always at its best when produced and performed with simplicity.

You can't get much simpler than that. In their revival Crown City Theatre keep it simple with minimal blocking from director Lisaun Whittingham and boasting a fine cast... (more...)

Beg, borrow, or steal a ticket to this show. It is peerless in the present landscape of Sydney theatre, a razor-sharp scintillation that remarks most precisely on current culture. It is what this reviewer has long been waiting for, and prays becomes a zeitgeist for contemporary Australian narratives and artistic talent to aspire to, nay blossom into. A toast to director Sarah Goodes for a play that held such gravitas and pregnancy, of course to playwright Ayad Akhtar with congratulations on winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and also to Steve Francis for creating a sound design that transcended typicality and brought collective consciousness to this reading room drama.
