There’s a new Berry on the road! Broadway favorite Chester Gregory will join the national tour of Motown the Musical as Motown founder Berry Gordy beginning January 5 in Richmond, VA. The touring production continues to make its way across the country, and the musical plans to return to Broadway for an 18-week limited engagement in July.

Gregory has appeared on Broadway in Hairspray, Tarzan, Cry-Baby and Sister Act. He has toured nationally with Dreamgirls, Sister Act, as well as his one-man show The Eve of Jackie Wilson.

Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, Motown The Musical is the true American dream story of 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, Marvin Gaye and so many more. Featuring more than 40 classic hits such as "My Girl" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," Motown The Musical tells the story behind the hits as Diana, Smokey, Berry and the whole Motown family fight against the odds to create the soundtrack of change in America. Motown shattered barriers, shaped our lives and made us all move to the same beat.
