Michael Jackson Makes His Way To Broadway! Motown: The Musical Set To Premiere!

Motown is headed to Broadway this spring!

After being several years in the making, director Charles Randolph-Wright has finally found his perfect cast for Motown: The Musical!

Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, amongst others, will all be portrayed by actors on the Great White Way, starting March 11th!

12-year-old Raymond Luke Jr. has been cast to play young MJ, and will have the honor — and major pressure — of singing some of the Jackson 5’s greatest hits, like I Want You Back and ABC!

Check out a pic of Raymond (above)!!

Of the actor and his portrayal, Randolph-Wright states:

"Michael Jackson had intensity and a confidence, combined with a naiveté. He was almost hypnotic in his allure. You can't replicate one of a kind, but Raymond has that spirit, that feeling Michael Jackson gave you. He makes you smile."

Wow, those are definitely some big shoes to fill, but we’re sure the rising Broadway star will do just fine in playing the King of Pop!

Take a look at a behind the scenes sneak peak and hear Raymond sing some MJ… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
