Performed by a cast of veteran entertainers, including former members of The Jones, The Main Ingredient, The Spinners and The Marvelettes and peppered with Broadway savvy performers who had leading roles in “Dream Girls”, ” Your Arms Too Short to Box With God”, “Porgy & Bess” and “Showboat”, Forever Motown resumes its successful theater tour that broke its own box office records in 2018.
The veteran entertainers offer a non-stop, high energy trip down memory lane featuring the note-for-note hits America grew up on. The iconic Motown sound was recreated down to the slightest vocal and musical nuance by such American icons as Marvin Gaye & Tammie Terrell, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder and the entire Motown roster of stars. The look and feel of authenticity extends to costumes from Tony Award winning designer Evie Ross and classic Motown choreography from American Dance Theater director Terri Giordano who succeeded in creating visuals and choreographies that capture the unique Motown style.
Sing, dance and celebrate the music of your life to songs like My Girl, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Reach Out, Dancin’ In The Street, Stop, In The Name Of Love, Ain’t Nothin’ Like The Real Thing, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, and many more – nearly 30 non-stop hits in all!
The truly talented and charismatic cast is a perfect blend of look, sound and personalities, which are tailor-made for the songs they perform. Cumulatively, the cast members have performed on recordings with over 30 million record sales to their credit and over 40 years of both on and off Broadway experience. The director, musical director, choreographer and costume designer have jointly won over 25 of America’s most prestigious theater awards for their direction, choreography and staging.
