Legendary Motown songwriters take to Broadway

When you think Motown sound, you may think of The Supremes, Smokey Robinson or Marvin Gaye. But there are less visible-but equally influential-that cement the sound in the canon of American music. With their partner Lamont Dozier, Brian and Eddie Holland are the songwriters behind some of the most well-known songs of Motown. Now the three have teamed up to score the musical Three Wives Club, which premieres this month at Oriental Theater. We talk with Brian and Eddie Holland about their musical career and about bringing the sensibilities of the Motown sound to the Broadway stage. (Flickr/Norby)
