Presse : Les critiques sont bonnes:

"It is clear that the ego has landed. But, eager as I am as the next person to learn more about the Motown mogul, I was disappointed at how little I discovered." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"The show moves beyond being a welcome nostalgia fest and becomes an urgent rallying cry for us all to rediscover our Motown mojo." Dominic Cavendish The Telegraph

"This show is always enjoyable, if not always the transcendent hit you long for it to be." Dominic Maxwell for The Times

"The first half is a mess - too many songs, several little more than abbreviated verses, and a comically bad script." Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail

Commentaires : DID YOU KNOW?
Berry Gordy nearly turned down the Jackson Five, because he didn't want to work with kids. It was Gladys Knight who eventually pursuaded him to sign them, a year later!
Presse : "Under Charles Randolph-Wright’s direction, it remains what it was: a sparkling and enjoyable, if lumpy, journey through 25 years of Motown history. It’s just that the climax of the first act, and the opening minutes of the second, give the show a jolt of emotional currency that contrasts strikingly with its nostalgic spirit." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"Like the legendary music catalog from Motown, the revival that re-opened Thursday night at the Nederlander Theatre is alternately catchy and soulful, and overstuffed with memorable melodies." Jennifer Farrar for The Associated Press

"The hits just keep on coming in this formulaic but audience-pleasing show." Frank Scheck for The Hollywood Reporter
