Broadway Buzz: Berry Gordy Offers a Swingin’ Sneak Peek at Motown: The Musical

February 8th, 2013 | By Marc Snetiker


What’s your favorite Motown song? Chances are you’ll be able to hear it in Motown: The Musical, a brand new Broadway musical chronicling the life of Motown founder Berry Gordy (who wrote the show’s book).
