Motown the Musical - TCTB Review Roundup

Motown the Musical is at Hennepin Theatre Trust's Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis through Sunday only. Here's what some of our bloggers had to say about it:
Compendium - Minneapolis:
"Berry Gordy's drive and passion for music are the molten core around which all of Motown: The Musical (currently at the Orpheum) revolves, and it's a red hot performance from start to finish. "
Cherry and Spoon
"Motown the Musical is a rip-roaring race through 25 years of music history that may leave you with a slight cast of whiplash, but will also leave you with a whole lot of great tunes in your head and a smile on your face."
Play off the Page :
"High energy, fast-paced, and groovy."
Twin Cities Stages
"I can't emphasize enough how talented the entire cast is."
Coffee Talk with Bre:
"... a thoroughly delightful production that everyone can enjoy whether you love the soulfulness of Steview Wonder or the harmonies of the Supremes."
