PlayMakers Associate Artistic Director
Motown plays a pivotal role throughout Detroit ’67 from beginning to end. The music of Motown, which enjoyed its peak in the mid to late sixties, serves as the soundtrack of these characters’ lives. Music and dance provide a much needed emotional outlet, a release of energy, in times of celebration and sadness alike. Playwright Dominique Morisseau has carefully scripted these moments in the play, choosing specific songs and artists to highlight. Take a listen to PlayMakers’ playlist as you get ready to see the show, and enjoy the soundtrack of Detroit in 1967.
