Why See Pride and Joy - The Marvin Gaye Musical?
Love, Motown's History & Music Collide
Experience the rollercoaster story of Motown legend Marvin Gaye's life and love with Anna Gordy Gaye, the lady boss record executive, businesswoman, composer and songwriter who stole his heart. Brought together by music, their tale is now immortalized and told through by classic Gaye songs like 'Heard It Through The Grapevine', 'What's Going On', 'Inner City Blues' and 'Let's Get It On' in a brand new touring production of 'Pride & Joy - The Marvin Gaye Musical'.
Set against the backdrop of the rise of Motown records, the musical is narrated by the couple themselves as they take audiences on a journey through their courtship. The sister of Motown founder Berry Gordy, Anna rose through the ranks to form her own label. An artist signed to her brother's legendary record company, Marvin fell deeply in love with the then 37-year old Anna and because of their 17 year age gap their love was forbidden. Despite protests from friends and family, they married in 1963 and their marriage, however tumultuous, proved the inspiration for many a song.
Opening night: 13 June 2019
