With pop and rock music having taken over Broadway, it makes sense that revues— jukebox musicals— revisit music history, if with a confident, often joyfully contrived cohesion. The lyrics and narrative through-line of the ambitious, fast-paced 2013 musical Motown review the life and catalog of legendary producer Berry Gordy in fully fifty songs, often necessarily abbreviated, as performed by a stable of his stars— Marvin, Diana, Smokey, the Jacksons— in a tribute show meets dance party. Berry’s actual biography cedes center stage to the songs he made hits, and whose melodies and lyrics have defined American music, culture and politics. Shows at 1 and 7:30 p.m. for sing-along seeking holiday audiences.
