Thirty-five years after the ground-breaking original Broadway production, this UK and West End premiere of the sensational and iconic Tony Award®-winning musical DREAMGIRLS comes to the Savoy Theatre this November.
DREAMGIRLS transports you to a revolutionary time in American music history and charts the tumultuous journey of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois called ‘The Dreams’. They learn the hard lesson that show business is as tough as it is fabulous.
DREAMGIRLS features the classic songs ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’, ‘I Am Changing’, ‘Listen’ and ‘One Night Only’. This much-anticipated new production will be directed and choreographed by the hugely successful, Tony® and Olivier award-winning Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin, Something Rotten!) and Amber Riley (Glee) will play Effie White.
*Unless otherwise stated, Amber Riley will play the role of Effie for 7 out of 8 performances per week. Currently the alternate will perform on Wednesday evenings. Further casting will be announced in due course.
DREAMGIRLS runs 19 Nov 2016 - 11 March 2017 at The Savoy Theatre.
