See Motown: The Musical at the King's Theatre

An 18 piece orchestra playing over 50 Motown classics? What more could you ask for from a night out? And that's not even all this fantastical musical has to offer. The performance tells the story of Motown founder Berry Gordy who is inspired to become a music mogul after he watches an iconic boxing match and turns his attentions to being the best version of himself possible, with just $800 dollars to his name and a whole lot of ambition. If the tunes don't have you dancing, the inspiration certainly will.

About

One of the most prominent theatres in Scotland, the King’s Theatre dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. It’s primarily known for its world class musicals and pantomimes, however also receives many top touring comedies, dance performances and circus productions. Over the years, the theatre has seen many famous faces in its longstanding history, including Laurence Olivier, Katherine Hepburn and Michael Jackson. The theatre was designed by English theatrical architect Frank Matcham, who was responsible for the design of several theatres dotted around Glasgow. The King’s Theatre remains among his most renowned work, with a marble foyer, decorative auditorium and Matcham’s speciality of using fibrous plasterwork. The Edwardian theatre is one of Scotland’s listed buildings, thanks to its spectacular, intact baroque design and importance in the community. Its significance was further eminanted when it provided the venue for the 1930s Legendary Half-Past Eight Show, the site where Queen Elizabeth met country superstar Dolly Parton at the Silver Royal Jubilee Gala in 1977, and the host for the opening ceremony of Glasgow’s European City of Culture in 1990.
