  • Motown the Musical

    Before i booked the tickets i checked that you had a good hearing loop system as my partner is deaf in 1 ear and wears a hearing aid in the other. A very nice man (wish i taken his name) helped setting up device which worked well to start with then completely disappeared. At the interval he returned and helped in re-seating us so the the loop system worked perfectly for the second half which was then very enjoyable

    The Times

  • Motown breaks free of the normal constraints of a jukebox musical. It is a joyous, exuberant celebration of life, of challenge and ultimately of success.
