Another Broadway hit is coming to Philly! Next up on the Kimmel Center's Broadway Philadelphia roster — Motown the Musical! The exciting, record-breaking show is making Philadelphia the first stop on their US tour. The show just opened and runs through January 18.

Motown the Musical chronicles the legacy of music mogul Berry Gordy, sharing a fresh perspective on his monumental work in the music industry. This high-energy production takes its audience on a unforgettable journey through the rich history of Motown — showcasing the music that became the soundtrack of American living in the 60s, and far beyond.

Gordy’s work along with an extremely talented roster of musicians, songwriters, and the like yielded some of music’s biggest starts. From Michael Jackson to Diana Ross, Steve Wonder and Smokey Robinson, there was something very special about what was happening in Detroit at that time. And now, you get to see it all play out live on stage!

With over 40 classic songs like “My Girl,” “What’s Going on,” “Ain’t No Moutain High Enough” and many more, you’ll be left on the edge of your seat! The basis of the musical is Gordy’s 1994 autobiography that was adapted for the musical. The show is high impact and runs through the wide variety of the Motown catalog while giving a little insight into Gordy’s relationships with the artists and the music.

Tickets are going fast for this one, so don’t wait!


Motown the Musical
When: January 7-18
