Berry Gordy, Jr. and Motown Records will be the subject of a new Broadway musical, so says The New York Times.
Gordy will co-produce Motown: The Musical, scheduled to open on the Great White Way in the spring of 2013. How fun. We love the Motown sound.
The musical will include some new songs and those classic, beloved hits from the Motown catalog. Meanwhile, artists like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and Michael Jackson will be characters in the show.
"It's the truth about Motown, how it happened, why it happened, and who the people were and the ups and downs of the whole thing. I'm very delighted just to be involved," the Motown guru told Rolling Stone.
