The Soul of Motown- The Story of Songwriters Holland-Dozier-Holland

Written By Gregg Ostrin, Howard Pechet, Gary Lloyd  
With Creative Consultant Shirley Washington 
Music and Lyrics by Holland-Dozier-Holland 

Members of the Soul Music Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, brothers Eddie & Brian Holland, and Lamont Dozier, collectively known as “Holland-Dozier-Holland”, wrote and produced a cornucopia of hits that helped develop and ultimately define the MOTOWN sound through the 1960s and 70s. Despite their success writing for legendary artists like The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, The Four Tops, and The Temptations, the trio’s success was not without its trials and tribulations. Eddie struggled with stage-fright in his early career as a performing artist; a decade-long battle with Eddie’s former mentor and MOTOWN founder, Berry Gordy, saw them lose the legal rights to use their names in crediting their own works; and an internal conflict eventually led to partners sitting on opposing sides of a courtroom. These were parts of the journey that shaped the lives and careers of H-D-H. But over the course of their career, these musicians, producers, and lyricists succeeded in selling over a quarter of a billion records. Relive the music and experience the fascinating story of H-D-H as the soul of MOTOWN.

Forever Plaid

Written and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Stuart Ross

Musical Continuity Supervision and Arrangements by James Raitt

“Entirely enchanting and utterly entertaining! It will put a smile on your face, a hum in your throat and a tap to your feet.” – New York Post 

“Letter-perfect! Sweet, funny and thoroughly amusing.” – The New York Times 

“The laughter doesn’t stop! …Delightful, original and funny!” – The Associated Press

Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company, they became “Forever Plaid”. On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at this moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins….

Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations, and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that will keep you rolling in the aisles when you’re not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.
