Imagine seeing the greatest Motown groups of all time, all on stage together again!
That’s Forever Motown, and it’s so good for the soul. Hitsville churned out all the No. 1 hits back in the 60’s and 70’s…and this show celebrates the best of the best from Berry Gordy’s Detroit hit-making factory.
A fabulous cast, backed by a band of incredible musicians, represents Motown royalty-performing the beloved songs from the greatest groups, artists, and songwriters of all time: The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Mary Wells, Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell, and Stevie Wonder. “Clearly the best Motown Review to date”, raved CBS News; “Captures the essence of America’s own music in an evening of sheer fun, “ wrote the Washington Post. “Bring your dancing shoes, and bring the whole family. This is a show for everyone,“ exclaimed the Entertainment Review. Sing, dance and celebrate the music of your life to songs like “My Girl”, “I Heard It On The Grapevine,“ “Reach Out,” “Shop Around,” “Dancin’ In The Street,“ “Stop, In The Name Of Love,” “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing,” “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” and “Uptight”-nearly thirty nonstop hits in all!

Rhythm and Blues legends The Stylistics are one of the most successful soul groups ever with 12 straight Top Ten hits in the early ‘70s including: “You Are Everything,” “Betcha by Golly Wow,” “I’m Stone in Love with You,” “Break up to Make Up,” “Let’s Put it All Together,” and “You Make Me Feel Brand New.” Among their peers, they were one of the smoothest and sweetest soul groups of their era.
That famous Philly Soul sound is still groovin’ today as The Stylistics celebrate their 50th anniversary with original founding members Airrion Love and Herb Murell, plus Jason Sharp and the newest Stylistic, “Bo” Henderson (former lead vocalist of The Temptations) whose amazing falsetto makes you feel as though you are listening to the hit songs exactly as you first heard them on vinyl.
The Stylistics formed in Philadelphia in 1966 from two groups, The Percussions and The Monarchs. The group was then approached by Bill Perry, offering to record a song. Their first song, “You’re a Big Girl Now,” was recorded at Virtue Recording Studio in Philadelphia, written by their guitarist at the time, Robert “Doc” Douglas and road manager, Marty Bryant. Before long, the song became a number one hit in Philadelphia, and then other cities followed.
Founding members Herbert Murrell and Airrion Love, friends since junior high school, have managed to keep the music alive with the newest members of the group Jason Sharp and Barrington “Bo” Henderson, proving that old school is still cool.
