Motown The Musical landed in Manchester this week to rave reviews as the hit show took to the Opera House stage in Motown’s 60th anniversary year for a 4-week run in the city.
To celebrate the show’s arrival, The Supremes stepped out for a stroll in the unseasonably warm sunshine at Library Walks, off St Peter’s Square.
With music and lyrics from the Motown catalogue and book by Motown founder Berry Gordy, Charles Randolph-Wright’s production features a live 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 and I Heard It through the Grapevine and tells the story behind the classic hits.
