“Motown the Musical” is a feel-good story about the American dream coming true. It covers Motown founder Berry Gordy’s journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and so many more.

Featuring more than 40 classic hits such as “My Girl” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” the musical tells the story behind the hits as the whole Motown family fights against the odds to create the soundtrack of change in the U.S.

Details: 8 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 1 and 7 p.m. May 1. $30-$150. 2350 Robert Dedman Drive. texasperformingarts.org/season/motown-broadway-austin-2016.
