DETROIT TO WORLD… TO BROADWAY… & BACK…

I

t began as one man’s story… became everyone’s music… and is now Broadway’s musical. Motown the Musical is the true American dream story of Motown founder Berry Gordy’s journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson and many more. Motown shattered barriers, shaped our lives and made us all move to the same beat. In 1959 Berry Gordy secured a loan for $800 from his family savings fund and started his own record company in Detroit, Michigan. Within a few years, the label was selling more singles and released more hits than any other record company—and be-

came the most successful African-American owned and operated business in the U.S. Now, the Motown story is live on stage at the Fisher Theatre in the record-breaking smash hit Motown the Musical! Tickets for Motown the Musical at the Fisher Theatre Oct. 21–Nov. 16 go on sale Fri., July 18 at 10AM.
