Berry Gordy is gearing up for something totally new. He’s writing a Broadway musical about his life.
But don’t expect a whole lot of the real Motown in there. It could be void of many themes most are familiar with.
One critic is on the fence about how this actually might turn out. Thankfully Motown has some great music so if it is thrown in there, the show will be an automatic hit.
His story is an interesting one, but is colorful with drama and conflict that isn’t so flattering to his character.
There’s a good chance, though, the juicy stuff won’t be included.
The 82-year-old legend is best known for making music giants like Smokey Robinson and nurturing the talent that makes singers great.
He brought up artists like the Four Tops, The Supremes, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gay, among many, many other music legends.
