Motown The Musical draws 200 hopefuls to open casting in London
Motown The Musical held open casting in London today, drawing 200 wannabees hoping to portray the iconic artists of the Broadway hit show. There was no indication if the producers had struck gold, however there is sure to be some great casting. We didn’t spy Beverley Knight in the crowd but she’d definitely make a great Diana Ross.
Featuring a sixteen piece orchestra playing 50 Motown tracks including Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, I’ll Be There, Dancing In The Street, Stop! In The Name Of Love, My Girl, I Heard It Through The Grapevine and For Once In My Life, Motown the Musical tells the story behind the classic hits.
Motown the Musical is directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, with music and lyrics from the legendary Motown catalogue and book by Motown founder Berry Gordy.
Opening at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London’s West End next February, the show previews from 11 February 2016 and is currently booking until 22 October 2016.
