Why See Dreamgirls?
Official dates to be confirmed!
Following its star turn in London's West End from last December, Casey Nicholaw's stunning revival of the Henry Krieger-Tom Eyen musical Dreamgirls heads back across the Pond to Broadway in 2018! With former Glee star Amber Riley winning an Olivier Award for her stunning performance as Effie, it's as yet unclear who will be joining the Broadway production; however it will feature material taken from the Oscar-winning movie that saw Jennifer Hudson take home an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. It's coming home Broadway, so keep your eyes peeled for more details as they come!
What is it about?
Hopeful talents Deena Jones, Lorrell Robinson and Effie White are performing as "The Dreamettes" when ambitious agent Curtis Taylor, Jr. discovers them.
After quickly landing them a job as backup singers for the soul and rock 'n roll sensation James "Thunder" Early he begins to guide their quickly rising career, and dictates their every move. However, when the beautiful Deena emerges as the star of the group rather than the full-voiced Effie, the girls' rivalry leads to a personal and professional crossroads for the trio.
With a powerful score and thought-provoking story, Dreamgirls has touched audiences all the way from 1980s Broadway to 21st century Hollywood, introducing some legendary breakthrough performances along the way. No news yet as to whether Riley will reprise her enviable singing talent as Effie, with the remaining cast yet to be announced.
