Half a century ago, 1964 was the year Motown crossed the Atlantic in the flesh, and the Motown revue concert show – featuring the likes of Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson and Martha Reeves – toured the country to a rapturous response. Reach Out honours these and many more Tamla Motown legends. Classic songs are packed into the two-hour spectacular.
And as the artists of the 60s were carefully controlled, so too is the Reach Out cast drilled to meet the same high standard.
Headline artist Andre Lejaun said: “And with dozens of costume changes shoe-horned into each show at times there can be just as much going on backstage as there is under the spotlights.
“We still rehearse once a week, making sure our moves and harmonies are spot on.”
Magic Of Motown is at the Grand Theatre, Blackpool, Sunday, August 17, 7.30pm.
