Classic Broadway musical Dreamgirls comes to the West End’s Savoy Theatre starring Amber Riley from Glee!
The legendary musical hit Dreamgirls first opened on Broadway in 1981. With music by Henry Krieger and lyrics and a book by Tom Eyen, the story is centred on the aspirations and successes of various R&B acts, such as James Brown, The Supremes, Jackie Wilson, The Shirelles, and others. It follows a trio of young female artists from Chicago, known as ‘The Dreams’, and their rise to musical stardom in the 1960s.
On Broadway, Dreamgirls was nominated for 13 Tony Awards and won six. In 2006 the musical was made into a film, which starred Eddie Murphy, Beyoncé and Jennifer Hudson.
Produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, the legendary Dreamgirls has finally come to the West End, showing at the Savoy Theatre.
