The show’s executive producer Kevin McCollum is confident that audiences will fall so in love with the production that it will make its way to the big screen.
“Berry started in clubs recording songs and then he became a record executive. Then he took the company and knew that film was the next thing and he made two of the most important films, especially for African Americans. It was one of the first times when African Americans could take a look at themselves on the big screen and say, ‘we’re glamorous.’ So the idea of a movie after the musical, it absolutely makes sense.”
“Motown: The Musical” opens March 11 in New York City.
