The Magic of Motown hits MK Theatre

Date Posted:03/05/2016

Magic of MotownMusic fans are invited to join the party as hit touring concert show the Magic of Motown celebrates its 10th birthday with a tour of the UK and Ireland and it comes to Milton Keynes Theatre of 10th June.

Set to thrill its millionth music fan this year, the production’s 2016 show honours the 50th anniversary of the Four Tops’ chart-topping single Reach Out, I’ll Be There with its all-new REACH OUT® Tour.
 
About The Magic of Motown
 The Magic of Motown revives all-time favourites like: Stop in the Name of Love; Dancing in the Street; My Guy; Ain’t No Mountain High Enough; This Old Heart of Mine; I Heard it Through the Grapevine; Endless Love; All Night Long; Heatwave; I’m Coming Out; Why Do Fools Fall in Love; Get Ready; Ain’t Too Proud to Beg; My Girl; I Want You Back; I’ll Be There; Uptight (Everything’s Alright); How Sweet it Is and of course Baby Love.

“Sixties classics give way to present-day masterpieces from Lionel Richie and Diana Ross,” says show producer Michael Taylor.

“Sadly, many of the original singing legends are either no longer with us or no longer touring. The Magic of Motown is the nearest you’ll get to authentically capturing their incredible musical legacy in a live show.

“Our young cast is able to reflect the exuberance and excitement of these songs as they were originally performed.”

Equal care is taken to reproduce the original look of the stars on stage. It was not just the music that set them apart from all other hit singers of the time. For mass market appeal, artistes’ images were carefully controlled from dress and choreography, right down to their manners.

Michael says: “Thus we’ve employed the services of  top costume designer Claire Davis to create a fabulous selection of colourful costumes for the cast while leading man Andre Lejaune is responsible for choreographing the cast to perform the intricate dance moves for which Motown stars were famous.”
With the production presenting so many shows this coming year, Michael says there will be “nowhere to run, nowhere to hide” to keep you away from the Magic of Motown in 2015.
