Set off on a musical journey through time as you tap your feet to the tunes that moved the nation in the 1960s and '70s. Motor City Musical brings Motown hits from musicians like Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, and the Jackson 5 to the stage, celebrating the history of a genre that brought new life and rhythm to the American music scene.
Head to the GTS Theatre and settle into your seat as the curtain comes up on the cast of Motor City Musical. Travel back to the swinging '60s, a time when music broke down social barriers, changed lives, and brought Americans together over a shared love of soulful songs. Learn the story of Berry Gordy, whose Detroit recording studio put some of the last century's biggest musical names on the global radar.
You can't help but hum along as the greatest hits of icons like Otis Redding, Martha and the Vandellas, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, and Gladys Knight are performed by talented and exciting musicians. Before the curtain comes down on this Motown-inspired cabaret, you're sure to be singing a new tune and “Dancing in the Streets.”
