It began as one man’s story, and it became everyone’s music. Now it's a Broadway musical, and it's making a run at the Straz this week. Motown The Musical is the true American dream story of Motown founder Berry Gordy’s journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson and many more.

The play is showing through August 13th at the Straz Center. For more info, go to
