Dinner hour is an oppressively quiet time, probably because most families eat their meals in the public library. Let others talk while your mouth is full with today's Groupon: for $48, you get dinner-theatre admission to Motown Gold: A Musical Revue at Stage West Theatre Restaurant (a $97 value with tax included). Purchase one of the following Groupons:
- Tuesday, December 21
- Tuesday, December 28
- Tuesday, January 11
- Tuesday, January 25
Each performance at the elegant dinner theatre is preceded by a bountiful buffet, featuring 120 items to dine on, including a sprawling dessert selection. The buffet begins at 6:00 p.m., so pile your plate and nosh in good company until 7:45 p.m., when the performance commences. With a wide-ranging revue of R&B favorites, Motown Gold plucks at audience's heartstrings and canoodles nostalgic notions of music's golden age. Hum along to renditions of classics by The Temptations and The Four Tops, or tap toes to the gospel-infused strains of Marvin Gaye. A live band plays Stevie Wonder, The Jackson 5, and others to provide the rhythm for energetic dance numbers, while the blues are provided by a frowny clown softly tapping a glockenspiel. Sup on this cultural bounty yourself, or gift this Groupon to a know-it-all youngster for a healthy dose of his weekly wisdom.
Please note that Stage West has a semi-formal dress code.
- It’s gold-plated nostalgia especially given the staggering talents of the 10 tireless singers who change personas with as much agility as they change costumes and wigs. They can also dance up a storm when French puts them through some of the famous routines that characterized these Motown groups and artists who Gordy had taught to sell a song as much as to sing it. – Louis B. Hobson, The Calgary Sun
- Stage West always delivers. We have been season ticket holders for 8 years now and we will continue with our membership…There is something for everyone. – LynnandGeorge, TripAdvisor
