Aisha Jawando: Unconfined.
Christopher Fry: Fun, fun, fun!
Edward Baruwa: Joy and dancing
Samuel Nicholas: It means a lot to me as it’s what I grew up on with my mum playing Marvin Gaye, Steve Wonder and more on a Sunday morning. To be in a show where I’m singing these songs every night is special to me! Motown’s iconic, it’s a piece of history, a movement that’s still going today.
Simeon Montague: My favourite era of music
Jay Bryce: Motown is more than a record label. For the Motown record label and its’ stars to become so universally successful, during times of unbelievable racial tensions, inequality and abuse, shows how “Motown” was part of the change the world needed.
Motown is music for everyone. It is the ‘sound of Young America’.
It transcended racial boundaries. Motown was, and continues to be, a revolutionary movement, that changed the world and made it a much better place.
Edward Handoll: Good songs and a job in London’s West End!
Aisha Jawando: “All Night Long”
Christopher Fry: “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”
Edward Baruwa: “Please Mr Postman”
Samuel Nicholas: “Ball of Confusion” or “Reach Out and Touch”
Simeon Montague: There’s too many!
Jay Bryce: Definitely “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”. You hear Gladys Knight and Marvin Gaye’s version in the show and both are unique and just awesome.
Edward Handoll: “My Girl”
Aisha Jawando: Water!!
Christopher Fry: Chocolate
Edward Baruwa: Water
Samuel Nicholas: Juicy water lemon and lime flavour
Simeon Montague: Sudoku
Jay Bryce: Water. Dancing is thirsty work!
Edward Handoll: An interval cup of tea!
Aisha Jawando: The joy it brings people watching.
Christopher Fry: The people
Edward Baruwa: The music
Samuel Nicholas: Being able to do it every night
Simeon Montague: The freedom of expression in terms of vocals.
Jay Bryce: Being part of a huge, supportive company, onstage and offstage, and getting to hear the best songs ever written 8 shows a week.
