A note from Saycon about being a part of Motown:
“I’ve been a part of this musical journey since the first “Reading”of Motown in New York City. I’ve witness the greatness of Berry Gordy and the joy and business saavy he exudes each day in rehearsal. Our director, Charles Randolph Wright constantly reminding us that we are taking part in history in remaking this American story. Its been an absolute delight to see the script and hear the music. It is sure to be a hit!”
