Motown:The Musical  There comes a time in life when we must not run, we must not walk, but instead just straight up….dance. And while we’re all on the dance floor of this crazy little thing called life, we must groove it on over to see an incredible Broadway experience in the City of Brotherly Love…and Motown:The Musical has just what everyone is looking for at this very moment in time. But in case you need a touch further convincing as to why everyone should experience this Tony Award owning show about Motown Records pariah Berry Gordy and all of the incredible music stars that came along on his wild music tale-Diana! Smokey! Michael!–Philly Mixtape has these 5 reasons why right here as to exactly why everyone should grab those tickets to see Motown:The Musical while it’s here until this Sunday, June 11th.  Let’s groove.  The Academy of Music, various showtimes, 240 S. Broad St. 

Saturday Night Fever:The Musical Since you know you’ve got that “Staying Alive” strut more than mastered, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t boogie oogie oogie over to the box office at the Walnut Street Theatre and grab those tickets for Saturday Night Fever, the smash musical based off of the John Travota disco game changer, which also coincides with the fortieth (!!!) anniversary of the classically funkdafied ’70s dance flick. Of course, in order to truly prepare for this bedazzled spectacle, play, like, every Bee-Gee’s record ever as you grab those tickets right here, right now.
