REVIEW: Is Motown the Musical really just Motown in Concert?
Motown music is brilliant, and Motown the Musical is a fun, highly energetic celebration of that. The quality of the production is great, but is it more concert that musical? I think so.

Review: Motown Is A Lively, Easy-Going Show, With Legendary Music
Motown the Musical, currently playing at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London, is a lively, easy-going show, with legendary music crammed into every minute of it. Fast paced and energetic, the show revolves heavily around the music of Motown, with pieces of story weaved in. The show, although primarily just good fun, does not shy away from touching on more serious points linked in with the culture surrounding Motown, adding a sense of depth to the production.
