Why See Dreamgirls?

MusicalsLocal

and I am telling you, you're gonna love it

First debuting on Broadway in 1981, Dreamgirls has since become an iconic modern classic. Loosely based on the story of The Supremes, follow the triumph and torment of show business as the trio rises from backup singers to the toast of the town. Featuring showstopping Motown-inspired numbers including "Steppin' to the Bad Side" "Cadillac Car" and "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going", Dreamgirls is the ultimate showbiz musical, with glamour, glitz, love, and drama intact!

What is the story?

Hopeful singing talents Deena Jones, Lorrell Robinson, and Effie White are performing as The Dreamettes when ambitious agent Curtis Taylor, Jr. discovers them. Landing them a job as backup singers for the soul and rock 'n' roll sensation James 'Thunder' Early, he smartly begins to mold their rising career. However Deena and Effie come to blows when the former is lauded as the group's star for her beauty, rather than the full-figured and vocally more talented Effie, and the dream threatens to unravel as fast as it began.
