*Building Motown and the careers of R&B greats like Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye is arguably the greatest thing Berry Gordy has offered to the world of music.
But he’s not done yet. In an interview with the Associated Press, the 83-year-old says Broadway has always been on his career bucket list. And today, he’s going to see that dream realized.
“Motown: The Musical” highlights Berry’s journey through Motown and gives fans and audience members a chance to experience his relationships and interactions with some of the greatest artists to ever touch the mic.
“Most likely it will be my last major endeavor in a creative way,” he said in a telephone interview with AP. “Of course everyone disagrees with me when I say that statement. This is probably the epitome of everything I’ve done — that I’ve wanted to do.”
And what a spectacular event it’ll be.
