More than a celebration of Motown, it highlighted issues such as acceptance, racism, strained relationships, acceptance and the problems faced with fame and fortune which often musicians face.
Motown The Musical has a strangely conceived storyline but is carried along on a wave of wonderful music.
Each song is playful, catchy, foot-tapping and filled with warmth and affection for one another. The five Moe’s are energetic and throw themselves into the fast-paced, jazzy pieces and choreography by Andrew Wright with joy and exuberance.
Underbelly Productions have today announced full casting for a brand new production of Clarke Peters’ Olivier Award-winning and Tony-Award nominated musical, Five Guys Named Moe. The production will open on 14 September 2017 in a new temporary theatre in Marble Arch, London.
