Tamla Motown

Theatre Royal, Norwich

Review published in the Eastern Daily Press, 27 June 2005

Tamla Motown

Along with mini-skirts, long hair and flower-power, Tamla Motown is the 60s.

Those of a certain age have only to catch the opening bars of Reach Out I’ll Be There, Baby Love or Get Ready, to start grooving all over again.

To have a string of the greatest mighty Motown classics in 60’s costumes, hair-dos and dance routines as performed by The Supremes, The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Miracles and Stevie Wonder, was sheer joy.

These were living funky artistes, re-creating the heyday of that unique sound from Detroit that gave a voice to black and white people, then as now.

Story there was none – the music spoke for itself. Just to list the titles of the songs is to conjure the era and tell you it was a knock-out show.
