Nominated for 13 Tony awards and the winner of 6, including Best Book, Best Choreography, Best Actor and Best Actress in a Musical, DreamGirls has become one of the world's must-see musicals. The London version of DreamGirls opened at the Savoy Theatre on 14 December 2016, courtesy of Sonia Friedman who bought the rights to produce the show in London. A runaway success that will soon be coming to an end. But if you run you can still catch it!
During the turbulent decade of the sixties, Effie, Deena and Lorrell are three talented singers who dream of making a niche for themselves in the world of musicals. A dream that will come true when their R&B band, The Dreamettes, is discovered by Curtis Taylor Jr., a ruthless manager who makes them an offer they can’t refuse - backup singers for James Early, one of the most popular singers of the time. Intent on becoming famous, Taylor will take control of the band, until the girls realize the price they have had to pay for the fame and fortune they dreamt of.
