Barry Gordy is back in the producer role and he’s focused on finding the next MJ.

Well sort of…

Eurweb reports:

Production is under way for Berry Gordy’s Broadway musical, “Motown.”

The team is already looking for stars to play roles like young Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder.

But Gordy’s casting in an unconventional way for Broadway. He set up an audition website on Tuesday to help find the perfect people for the roles.

He’s looking for 8 and 11-year-olds that can sing, dance and act like Jackson. But he doesn’t want imitators, he wants kids who can still be themselves and shine like Jackson did.

The musical will open up next spring.

Stay Tuned.
