Get Ready, Get Ready........to tap your toe.......reach out and touch somebody.....ain't no mountain high enough.......ABC, Easy as 1,2,3......it's a Ball of Confusion........but not if you're with My Guy or My Girl
Hitsville USA - the roots of Motown and Berry Gordy. Quite the story and the epitome of the American Dream
Motown the Musical tells the story of Berry Gordy's dream and the soul/pop/R&B glory of so many artists - - Diana Ross and The Supremes, the Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Jackson 5, Martha & the Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and the Pips, the Commodores...... The list is endless and the songs are etched in the songbook of my life.
I wanted to be Diana Ross when I saw her on Ed Sullivan. She was exotic and talented and sexy and beautiful.
And Michael Jackson..........oh my goodness - he was an old soul in a young body - so talented with that sweet voice and those dance moves.
I treated myself on Sunday to a ticket in the mezzanine at Bass Hall. The lights went down, the show went on, and I was tapping my toe. Bliss, absolute bliss - the voices were extraordinary and the dancing was like air.
I highly recommend Motown The Musical if the show rolls through your town.
