Motown Leads Chosen

Dixon was nominated for a Tony for his performance in The Color Purple and LeKae was seen on Broadway as an understudy in The Book of Mormon and Ragtime.
Motown The Musical Broadway stars Brandon Victor Dixon as Gordy and Valisia LeKae as Diana Ross.
The rest of the cast has yet to be chosen and although the exact number in the show is not known this is expected to be a big musical. It’s rumored that the musical will cost around $200 million.
Berry Gordy created the Motown record label and after that numerous others. It was in Motor City, that is Detroit, Michigan, that Motown was born. Motown started after Gordy, who had some success as a songwriter in the mid 1950s, reinvested his profits from that venture and began producing songs by new talent. In 1957, he discovered the Miracles, whose lead singer was Smokey Robinson.

In 1959, Gordy used $800 he had borrowed from family members to start the Tamla record label. He also created Motown around the same time. He became adroit at recognizing new talent and over the course of time would discover some of the richest R&B, soul and pop talent in the US, including Diana Ross, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson.
On April 14, 1960, the Tamla and Motown labels were merged to become Motown. Now a little more than 53 years after Motown was founded, on April 16, 2013, the musical about Gordy, his life and American pop music will be first seen on Broadway.
Gordy, who is 82, is one of the show’s producers and the book writer. This musical looks to be monumental. The immense Motown catalogue will be featured in the show.
