    Fab - u - lous! A great show for everyone and such talent on stage. I believed I was seeing the real Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye et all. I had forgotten just how many stars Motown had produced. The tracks of my teens!

  • Review Avatar Feb 14, 2016

    Enjoyed the show not one of the best I have seen though, the finale could have been better, the audience would have loved a boogie!

  • Review Avatar Feb 14, 2016

    Brilliant first half. second half lacked the same emotion and failed to build to the climax that leaves the audience raving about the show all the way home

  • Review Avatar Feb 14, 2016

    Excellent show. Very strong acting and singing and great dance routines.

  • Review Avatar Feb 14, 2016

    not what I expected to much acting not enough singing.well presented and performed just felt a bit let down as it was a expensive Christmas present for my husband who loves all the motown classics and sadly these were missing.

    My husband enjoyed it, I was disappointed, as have seen many shows didn't have the wow factor I was expecting( think at the end should have been a medley, also felt the music wasn't loud enough, and 2 me if people are not up dancing on the opening week says it all,lead roll actor was fab and Diane, but people will be expecting too be up dancing as too me this is what Motown music does!, dissipointed as tickets were not cheap , Mrs harrison

    Great show ! Only slight criticism is that the sound could have been higher during the dialogue as we struggled to hear it sometimes . And looking around so did others !

  • Review Avatar Feb 14, 2016

    Brilliant show! Will have to see it again! Felt really Uplifted after the show. Story line was good. Go and see it everyone!

  • Review Avatar Feb 14, 2016

    What a great show certainly on a par with We Will Rock You and the Jersey Boys. We thought the guy who played Smoky Robinson was great and didn't half look like him. the guys who made up the Temptations and the Four Tops were very good as well the rest of the cast were very good. We thought that the Barry Gordy story line a bit weak but that is just nit picking. Great show go and see it.

    Absolutely fab... the cast, all of them, amazing, little Michael amazing. Wanted to get up and dance all through and would love to go and see it again. If you haven't guessed I loved it!!!

    Such an easy service to pick up the tickets. The show itself was a wonderful experience. The best bit was their version of "War". AWESOME! Diana Ross - brilliant (sorry, I'm not sure who the actress was) Only issue was technical where the mics were not on for some of the cast. And it became obvious when someone turned their volume up. 3rd day in so I expect errors. Otherwise, GO AND SEE!!!
