Well one thing is for sure: the mounting of a musical is big business! I performed at an event to announce the pre-sale tickets for Motown the Musical and their collaboration with Chrysler and Citibank. Tickets are on sale already for a show that will be starting this spring. Representing Martha and the Vandellas, Saycon, N’Kenge, and Rebecca Covington had a ball in sparkly Ralph Lauren dresses that were tweaked for our special performance at the Nederlander Theatre. The whole cast was outfitted for the event to give a modern suggestion of whats to see in the spring. Though the actual show costumes will be a whole other ballgame true to life, time, and authentic to the time periods portrayed. It was an exciting day that started with rehearsals, fittings, sound checks, and ended with a reception to celebrate. The stars were out from Aretha Franklin, the legendary writing group Holland, Dozier, Holland, Smokey Robinson, and of course Berry Gordy himself. We performed some numbers from the show and the audience got to get a little taste of the show Mr. Gordy and his team have been working so diligently on. I’m excited for people to see it!
