Theater: Motown, 42nd Street, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

We were lucky enough to catch a few of matinees during our visits to London, all musicals.

Motown the Musical

This delightful musical was a reminder of the social changes that took place over the span of 25 years covered by this show.  The music is classic, the production was sensational and the songs and dances were highly entertaining.  It played at the Shaftesbury Theatre.

42nd Street

We were never able to see this show on Broadway but finally scored tickets for a matinee.  It was a fantastic show on one of the largest stages in London’s theater district, Dury Lane.

Great tapping!  A well choreographed cast with heartbeat timing, in perfect costume.  It’s as if we were chosen to be in this right place at this very time.

For years we missed this show in New York.  Now redeemed, this was one of the best song and dance shows anywhere, ever!!

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

This is a new musical about a young man in high school, coming of age and quickly gets comfortable in his own skin.  The songs are original, fresh and new.  The singing is excellent.  Reviews and audience reaction has been very favorable.  We were impressed.  At the Apollo Theatre.
