You’ll enjoy this show because:
Your soul will sing with this dazzling, six-time Tony Award winning R&B rollercoaster ride through 1960s show business. With unforgettable, spine-tingling vocals that send audiences wild, DREAMGIRLS explores themes of ambition, hope, friendship and betrayal through gospel, R&B, smooth pop, disco and more, all set in the glamorous and competitive world of the entertainment industry. And the film of DREAMGIRLS won the Golden Globe for Best Picture – Comedy or Musical and two Academy Awards.
Based on the show business aspirations and successes of R&B acts such as The Supremes, The Shirelles, James Brown, Jackie Wilson, and others, this spectacular musical follows the story of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois called “The Dreams”, who become music superstars – three talented young singers in the turbulent 1960s, a revolutionary time in American music history. Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, DREAMGIRLS tells the rags-to-riches story of a Motown girl group and the trials and tribulations that come with fame and fortune.
