FROM the Heart of the Motor City to the heart of the new city at MK Theatre this week.
Performances of Dancing in the Streets, are continuing tonight and through to Saturday.
Motown broke down barriers and delivered some of the most vibrant, enduring and feel good hits around.
It’s usually a cliche to tell you to pop on your dancing shoes before making tracks to the venue, but actually, this really will be one of those shows where you won’t be able to ignore the rhythm.
Music made famous by The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles and Martha Reeve and The Vandellas will knit this show together.
With musical stock like that, the pot will be boiling over with material including I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Baby Love, My Girl, Please Mr Postman and Tears of a Clown.
Reach out for a ticket...but they won’t be there for long!
They start at £9 and head upwards to a top price of £25.50.
The curtain rises on tonight’s session at 7.30pm, or you can view tomorrow at 5 or 8.30pm, and on Saturday choose to soak in a delivery at 4 or 8pm.
FOR half a century Danza Contemporanea de Cuba has produced inspired dancers with simply incredible abilities.
Style-wise they evoke the sensual, mystical and raw heart of Cuban spirit, and next Wednesday they’ll show off their flair when they take over the MK T stage for a brief, two-night run.
When they made their debut tour of the UK in 2010, the response they received was absolutely amazing.
The Guardian Newspaper decided it was ‘an exotic hybrid of contemporary, classical and caribbeans styles,’ while The Telegraph said the piece was ‘Drop-dead gorgeous, performed in such perfect synch, and with such sexy intensity, that you can’t tear your eyes away.’
If you are a regular theatre visitor, but usually opt for straight plays or classic musicals, that’s fine, but you should try something different every once in a while, too.
With tickets starting at just £9 a pop, this is the perfect opportunity to take a chance...we reckon it’ll pay off.
Show time is 7.30pm on Wednesday and Thursday, but those of you going on the former date might like to stay back when the curtain falls – a post-show talk will be held.
