Sprinkling a bit of Motown magic
Published 24/02/14



CELEBRATING 50 years of UK number one hit singles, The Magic of Motown is coming to Reading’s Hexagon with its new Reach Out Tour.

In 1964 The Supremes rocketed to the top of the British singles chart with the song Baby Love. Another 100 worldwide Motown number ones followed The Supremes’ lead.

Direct from the USA, The Magic of Motown features 36 back-to-back Motown hits.

Show producer Michael Taylor said: “Five-star performances authentically revive the style and sophistication of all your favourite Detroit legends.

“This year we’re proud to announce that the show will include more number one hits than ever before.”


The show will include chart toppers from the Temptations, Four Tops, Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie and The Supremes, among others.

“As well as dazzling dance moves and glittering costumes galore, the elusive, authentic sound of Motown is recreated by our incredible Magic of Motown band. The group, especially put together for the show, are now celebrating their 10th year together.

“In their capable hands you can guarantee that the score will be — with a nod to the great Stevie Wonder — uptight. . . alright and out of sight!” He added: “Sadly, many of the original Motown legends are either no longer with us or no longer touring. The Magic of Motown is the nearest you’ll get to authentically capturing their musical legacy in a live show.

“Our young cast is able to reflect the exuberance and excitement of these songs as they were originally performed. Also, we’ve employed the services of top designer Claire Davis to create a fabulous selection of colourful costumes.”

lThe Magic Of Motown is at the Hexagon on March 27. Box office 0118 960 6060 or visit www.readingarts.com for the cast while leading man Andre Lejaune is responsible for choreographing the cast to perform the intricate dance moves for which Motown stars were famous.”

With the production presenting so many shows this coming year, Michael says there will be “nowhere to run, nowhere to hide” to keep you away from the Magic of Motown in 2013.
