Magical Motown Musical at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts

There is something magical about a theater full of people singing along together to their favorite classic songs. That was the case on opening night of Motown the Musical at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. With my older son being a huge fan of Motown music, I surprised him with dinner at Leatherby’s followed by tickets to opening night of the show at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

We participated in a couple of the pre-show activities including a fun photo opportunity before taking our seats inside of the theater for the performance. It was a full house without an empty seat anywhere in the theater. The lights began to dim; the curtain rose, and the musical performance began. We were dancing in our seats along with the rest of the audience as all of our favorite Motown music was sung by some of the most talented singers in Country.

Not only was the show filled with all of our favorite Motown hits but also told the story of how Motown began and where it is today. It was a beautiful tribute to the work that Berry Gordy did over his lifetime of bringing Motown music into the lives of people around the world.

Our favorite part of the show was when the lights came on, and “Diana Ross” pulled two guests out of the audience to the front the stage where they sang along with her. The entire audience cheered for these brave guests from the audience sending chills down my spine.

I recommend the performance for children who love music and are over the age of 10 (there is some bad language at parts in the performance.) I guarantee that your music loving children will fall in love with this performance while gaining a new respect for how music comes to life.

Motown the Musical is only here in Orange County at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts until June 28th. Single tickets start at $29 and may be purchased online at SCFTA.org, the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling (714) 556-2787.
