Playing in the Long Beach Playhouse’s Mainstage Theater
May 18 – June 15, 2024
Directed by Robyn Hastings

Motown music is the soul of the party in 1967 Detroit as Chelle and her brother Lank make ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. A dreamer, Lank wants to use their inheritance to buy a bar downtown, but Chelle wants the stability the money brings. When a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the ’67 Detroit uprising. As tensions explode in the streets, will Chelle and Lank be able to hold onto their fragile family ties and their ever present dreams?

LBP’s Opening Night Gala for DETROIT ’67 is sponsored by the Port of Long Beach! A BIG THANK YOU to the Port!
