Motown is the big Broadway musical which tells the story of America's greatest record label. With a book by founder Berry Gordy, this dazzling musical is bursting at the seams with iconic tracks from The Supremes, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and many more. A sensation when it opened on Broadway in 2013, Motown was nominated for four Tonys and spawned a North American tour which is still going to this day!

Located on Shaftesbury Avenue in the heart of the West End, the Shaftesbury Theatre is the youngest theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. Bertie Crewe designed the theatre for brothers Walter and Frederick Melville. Since 1984, the Theatre of Comedy Company has owned the venue. In 2006 the theatre underwent a large-scale refurbishment on the interior of the auditorium, and it has hosted several revivals of musicals since its re-opening.
