Motown The Musical will be the latest Broadway show to pack its bags and hit the road for a U.S. tour. Auditions for the show recently took place in both New York and Chicago. The show will run April 22-July 13, 2014, in Chicago, with additional cities to be announced.
Although Motown wasn't nominated for "Best Musical" at the 2013 Tonys, the show has become one of the most popular of this past season. In June, the show even released an original cast album. The show, which opened in April, features songs of Motown greats like Diana Ross and The Supremes, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and The Jackson Five. (We even compiled a list of some of the era's greatest songs here!)
