Motown The Musical brilliant and I recommend this musical. However The Shaftesbury Theatre ticket/box office changed my tickets/seats rudely to their own needs. Poor service from the box office.

The show was amazing ! All you love and want to listen to and ... sing! Moving when it comes to romance and History, making constant links with the Civil Rights Movement. Perfect facilities to purchase and collect our tickets via London-theatre-direct ! Many thanks !

Lisa Bennett22nd April

Was unhappy that I was charged £17.00 more than face value on each ticket. The show was average, not any atmosphere in fact there was a notice in the loos discouraging you from being too enthusiastic and you might be asked to leave. Musicals you do get up and dance this was encouraged right at the end of the show. Very disappointed !!
