83-year-old Motown Records founder is taking his story and that of his label to Broadway.
“Motown: The Musical,” will begin previews on Monday at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, and will allow Gordy to retell the roller coaster career that launched him into the entertainment stratosphere.
“Most likely it will be my last major endeavor in a creative way,” he said to TheGrio.com. “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.”
