While in Minneapolis, MN company members from Motown the Musical, under the direction of cast member Christian Dante White, worked with celebrity photographer Brent Dundore to capture the essence of the Motown artists they portray every night onstage in a high fashion shoot. Scroll down for photos!

"We are so fortunate to bring this amazing show around the country each week. I wanted to capture the beauty of the cast influenced by the style of Motown in a contemporary setting," says Christian Dante White. "Each night we embody these characters and we hope these photos will serve as another way to celebrate the legends & artists."

MOTOWN THE MUSICAL is currently playing at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia through January 18.

MOTOWN THE MUSICAL is the true American dream story of Motown founder Berry Gordy's journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and so many more. Featuring more than 40 classic hits such as "My Girl" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," 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.
