Writer, Nate Alston, created the production to bring the music of Motown to the Barn's stage. From the moment the lights go up until the curtain call, the show packs non-stop excitement! The cast belts out the sounds of Motown while performing energetic dance routines. In this classic story of boy meets girl but breaks her heart, love is rekindled through the love songs we know and love so well sung by the melodic voice of the show's musical hero Sweet Daddy. This year, the production welcomes back the original Sweet Daddy, Wendell Powell
