The Broadway show "Motown: The Musical" is taking a year and a half off starting in January.
Producers say the show will play its final performance at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on January 18.
It will return to a different Broadway theater in July 2016.
In the meantime, a production of the show is set to open in Britain next summer.
"Motown: the Musical" has been playing since April 2013 and was nominated for five Tony Awards.
