Day 15 / 105 - Motown: The Musical

Sunday night, we headed to uptown Charlotte to view the Broadway tour of Motown: The Musical.  Hands down, this was one of the most engaging and exciting musicals I've witnessed.  We traveled through time as this jukebox musical shared the story of Berry Gordy's founding and running of the Motown record label.  The musical contained 66 song selection from the Motown catalog.  It was a great line-up!

The Jackson 5 performers were a huge hit for myself and my children.  Since then, I've located the Jacksons' Ed Sullivan performances more than once so my children can experience the classical choreography along with the bell-bottoms, fringe-suede vests, platform shoes, and Michael's renowned purple hat.
