Motown the Musical

Motown the Musical is billed as the life story of Berry Gordy, and it does offer some behind-the-scenes peeks at Hitsville USA, including Gordy’s initial, ill-fated seduction of Diana Ross and his disagreement with Marvin Gaye over “What’s Going On.” But given that his biography is so wrapped up in the legend of the artists he discovered and the sound of the label he founded, it seems forgivable if the life details are glossed over in favor of the music. More than 60 Motown classics are given vibrant life in this jukebox musical, and chances are good you’ll know them all. Times vary, $29-$132.
