About the show

After a 35-year wait, Dreamgirls finally comes to London in a dazzling new musical production at the Savoy Theatre.

The musical Dreamgirls premiered in 1981 at the Imperial Theatre on Broadway, just a few days before Christmas. It has since snapped up an impressive six Tony Awards and been nominated for a further five. In 2006, it was adapted for the big screen, with Beyoncé and Jennifer Hudson taking on the starring roles.

This long-awaited new stage production opened in November at London’s Savoy Theatre. It combines Tom Eyen’s lyrics and Henry Krieger’s music with the direction and dazzling choreography of Olivier and Tony Award-winner Casey Nicholaw, who previously worked on The Book of Mormon, Something Rotten! and Aladdin.

Dreamgirls is loosely based on real-life supergroup The Supremes and their quest for success in the tough music industry of the 1960s. The show’s fictional group, The Dreams, are a fresh-faced R&B trio from Chicago, who belt out hit songs including Listen, And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going and One Night Only.

Moya Angela, Marisha Wallace and Karen Mav share the lead role of Effie White. Asmeret Ghebremichael plays Lorrell Robinson, while Brennyn Lark plays Deena Jones. Joe Aaron Reid takes the role of Curtis Taylor Jr. Tosh Wanogho-Maud, Durone Stokes, Delroy Brown and Kimmy Edwards join them in the cast.

As their name suggests, The Dreams are a group not afraid to think big. Their battle against the nastier side of showbiz speaks to audiences everywhere of the trials faced on the road to success.

A sizzling and soulful journey from youthful dreaming to super-stardom.

Winner of 2 awards at the 2017 Olivier Awards with MasterCard.

Dreamgirls runs at the Savoy Theatre until 12 January.
