Broadway sensation Dreamgirls dazzles at the Savoy Theatre London, starring diva songstress Amber Riley from hit US series Glee. Dreamgirls officially opened at the theatre on December 14th and plays an extended season until October 2017.

Set in 1960’s America, throughout the dawning era of R&B, Dreamgirls follows a trio of Chicago girls called “The Dreams”, who sing in various competitions. Soon, they are spotted by ex-car salesman Curtis Taylor, who wants to be their manager. Enjoying initial success, the girls soon experience the downfalls of fame, when Curtis tries to replace Effie with the more appealing Deena as lead singer. A test of love, friendship and success, Dreamgirls is the popular musical which is said to be loosely based on Diana Ross and The Supremes.

Opening on Broadway in 1981, Dreamgirls scooped a record six Tony Awards and five Drama Desk Awards, including Best Book of a Musical and Best Performance of a Leading Actress in a Musical for Jennifer Holliday’s portrayal of Effie White. In 2006, the musical was adapted into a popular film starring Beyoncé Knowles as Deena and Jennifer Hudson as Effie, earning Judson an Academy Award for her performance. Now, Riley steps into the iconic roles’ shoes, set to wow audiences in her West End debut.

Dreamgirls includes iconic musical numbers such as “I Am Changing”, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going”, “Dreamgirls”, “Listen” and “One Night Only.” Fans of classic R&B and soul music will absolutely love the powerhouse vocals displayed in this show, along with the heart-wrenching story and breath-taking choreography. Don’t miss out on Dreamgirls, playing at London’s Savoy Theatre!
