Motown: The Musical

Posted by Julian Spencer on December 22, 2014 at 12:30am 0 Comments

Before attending the touring production of Motown: The Musical at the Orpheum Theatre, I did a little research and discovered that the production contained renditions of over 50 Motown songs. At first I wondered how in the world they could fit in all this music and a story in one cohesive package; it did that in an energetic and thrilling fashion.

What I ended up seeing, I could not have prepared myself for.

Motown the Musical truly brings a new perspective to that genre of musicals I tend to call “concert musicals,” or musicals that take the songs of a specific groups, in this case a specific record label, and build a musical around them.

Dirty Dancing

Do you think Dirty Dancing the stage play would work as a stand alone? I'm curious if you think it's strong enough and has enough of a plot by itself to carry people through without having seen the…Continue

    What is SpotLight's Critical Reviewer Program?

    SpotLight's Critical Review Program gives high school students the opportunity to attend and review touring Broadway productions and SpotLight school productions. Critical Review is part of a larger curriculum that teaches communication skills, and enhances critical thinking and creative response. As part of this program, students receive study guides and press kits before the show, learn from experts including local theatre critics, playwrights and actors who discuss topics from lighting design to choreography, and in some cases, have expanded access to the Broadway touring cast and crew. 

    This program is funded through the generous support of Fred and Ann Moore.
