Reviews of Motown: The Musical

Reviews for the Broadway production:
“Something close to rapture spreads through the audience when a magical little dynamo, the young Michael Jackson, takes the stage, spinning like a tiny top and singing with a grown man’s soul in his little boy’s voice box” New York Times
“Thanks in part to the flashy period costumes designed by Esosa and the energetic vintage choreography created by Patricia Wilcox and Warren Adams, these exuberant impersonations are highly satisfying.” New Jersey Newsroom
