 The show began with the cast of Finding Neverland! who impressed fans with “We’re All Made of Stars”, “Neverland” and “All That Matters.”  The cast of The Fantasticks wowed showed why it is the longest off Broadway running musical with “Soon It’s Gonna Rain.” It may have been the opening night for Motown but the show performed a medley of hits from the Supremes and the Jackson 5, as well as “Do You Love Me,” “Get Ready” and “Dancing in the Street.” Special guest Berry Gordy, creator of Motown, came out to surprise concert-goers and introduce the cast’s closing number “What’s Going On, but more of this show in the second part of this article and video segment.”  Jamie Camil (Jane the Virgin) and the rest of the Chicago cast closed out the show with hits including “Roxie,” “Me & My Baby” and “We Both Reached For The Gun”.
