LIVE at the Alhambra: So Good for the Soul @ Alhambra Theatre
Feb 13 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

What an era! What a show! So Good for the Soul is a non-stop, high energy trip down memory lane performed by a cast of 8 veteran entertainers and their band, including former members of The Jones, Main Ingredient and The Marvelettes peppered with Broadway savvy performers. Sing, dance and celebrate the music of your life to songs like “My Girl,” “ I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” “Reach Out,” “Shop Around,” “Dancin’ In The Street,” “Stop, In The Name Of Love,”, “Ain’t Nothin’ Like The Real Thing,” – nearly 30 non-stop hits in all!

From their website:

How much would you pay to see the greatest Motown groups of all time, all on one stage together again? That’s never going to happen, but, we’ve got the next best show!

Hitsville churned out all the #1 hits back in the 60s and 70s…and So Good for the Soul celebrates the best of the best from Berry Gordy’s Detroit hit-making factory. A fabulous cast, backed by a band of incredible musicians, represents Motown royalty — dressed to the nines, blinged out, and performing the beloved songs from the greatest groups, artists and songwriters of all time: The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Mary Wells, Lionel Ritchie, Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell, Stevie Wonder. “Clearly the best Motown Review to date”, raves Geoff Lewis from CBS News; “Captures the essence of America’s own music in an evening of sheer fun”, writes the Washington Post. “Bring your dancing shoes and bring the whole family. This is a show for everyone.” exclaims the Entertainment Review.
