Durham, N.C. — Weather will not stop "Motown the Musical" from hitting the stage. The show, which charts the rise of Berry Gordy from professional boxer to founder of Motown Records, begins its run at the DPAC Tuesday night.
On it's website, the DPAC announced that the performance "will take place as scheduled" despite the winter storm that has left road conditions sketchy for many in the Triangle area and beyond.
The nearly sold-out show is set to play the DPAC through Sunday. Those dates will also go on as scheduled.
"Large entertainment and sports events are rarely canceled unless the stars, players or cast are unable to perform. With North Carolina weather, it's always an unknown in terms of exactly what type and amount of precipitation will fall, and conditions can vary widely throughout the region. We always watch the weather closely and monitor road conditions and do understand the hardship that inclement weather may cause for some travelers. Local weather or road conditions that may affect an individual guest or guests from attending are not cause for cancelation. You should allow yourself some extra time to travel to the theater if you are attending a scheduled performance in inclement weather. Please note that refunds are not issued if the show is performed as scheduled," the venue's weather policy reads.
The DPAC ticket center will open at noon Tuesday. Ticket holders who will be unable to attend Tuesday night's show due to weather issues are asked to contact customer service at CustomerService@dpacnc.com.
