The story of the Motown family comes to life on Philadelphia stage! Motown The Musical, the electrifying new musical based on the autobiography of Motown record label founder Berry Gordy, opens the New Year for the 2014-2015 Broadway Philadelphia series of The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts & The Shubert Organization.
