*A musical based on the life of legendary Motown Records founder Berry Gordy is set to open on Broadway next year, reports the Associated Press.
Producers today announced that “Motown,” with 81-year-old Gordy writing his own book, will open in the spring of 2013 at a Nederlander Theatre to be announced. It will be directed by Charles Randolph-Wright.
The songs will include those made famous by Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five.
