Smokey & Me - A Celebration of Smokey Robinson

Mainstage 2021-22
USCB Center For The Arts
Wednesday, Jan 26, 2022 at 7:30 PM (ET)

As the story goes, Smokey Robinson, a founder of Motown and one of the producers of Motown: The Musical, went backstage on opening night to look for Charl Brown, the handsome young actor who portrayed him in the show. When he found Charl backstage, he came up to him, smiled and simply said, “Hello, Me!”.

This delightful story became the inspiration for a spectacular show that celebrates the life, music and career of acclaimed singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson, once pronounced by Bob Dylan as America’s “greatest living poet”. Smokey Robinson’s career spans over 4 decades of hits. He has received numerous awards including the Grammy Living Legend Award, NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award, Honorary Doctorate (Howard University), Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts Award from the President of the United States. He has also been inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.

Smokey is perfectly and uncannily captured by Charl Brown who won a Tony nomination for his portrayal of Smokey in Motown: The Musical.

Act One of this production celebrates Smokey’s story and many of his biggest hits…. ones he sang and ones he wrote, including: Shop Around, Mickey’s Monkey, Going to a Go-Go, You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me, My Girl, I Second that Emotion, Oooh Baby Baby, Tracks of my Tears and so many more.

Act Two explores the story of the actor who was fortunate enough to become Smokey every night in Motown: The Musical….taking you through Charl Brown’s Broadway history and hits, including songs from Hair, Jersey Boys, Pippin, Sister Act, The Wiz, and ending with a medley of Smokey’s iconic songs, Tears of a Clown and Being With You.
