Dubbed "Motown Family Night," the evening celebrated the artists and longtime members of the Motown family.

Motown: The Musical follows the rise of Motown founder Berry Gordy, from featherweight boxer to the high-powered music mogul responsible for launching the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and many others. Featuring a book by Gordy, the work takes its score from Motown's illustrious song catalogue, including hits like "Do You Love Me," "My Girl," "ABC," and "Dancing in the Street."

Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, the production opens on April 14. Click here for more information and tickets to Motown: The Musical.
