Mo Farah visits Motown The Musical

Published August 22, 2017

Legendary British athlete and double OIympic champion Mo Farah met with the cast of Motown The Musical at the Shaftesbury Theatre last night.

And while the long distance runner is used to triumphing and claiming gold medals on the track, on this occasion he was quick to score a ticket to the golden West End musical.

Motown The Musical last month released 500,000 new tickets for sale, taking bookings for the hit West End production to 5 January 2019 when the show will celebrate its third year in London and Motown will celebrate sixty years since the record company was founded.

With music and lyrics from the Motown catalogue and book by Motown founder Berry Gordy the production features a sixteen-piece orchestra playing 50 Motown tracks including Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, I’ll Be There, Dancing In The Street, Stop! In The Name Of Love, My Girl and I Heard It through the Grapevine.

Charles Randolph-Wright’s production tells the story behind the classic hits.
