About Dreamgirls

The Legendary Broadway musicals, Dreamgirls finally opens in the UK at London’s Savoy Theatre.

Based upon the stories of acts such as The Supremes, The Shirelles and James Brown, Dreamgirls follows the story of The Dreams, a young female singing trio from Chicago and their journey to musical superstardom.

Dreamgirls originally opened to Broadway in 1981, going on to win six Tony Awards (including Best Musical) and was also made into a hugely successful, Oscar winning movie in 2005 starring Beyoncé Knowles and Jennifer Hudson.

Featuring the classic songs and One Night Only, And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going, I Am Changing and Listen, Dreamgirls is directed and choreographed Tony and Olivier award-winning Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon and Aladdin) and Amber Riley (Glee) will play Effie White.
