Thirty-five years after the ground-breaking original Broadway production, this UK and West End premiere of the sensational and iconic musical Dreamgirls comes to the Savoy Theatre.
Inspired by R&B music acts in 1960s America, Dreamgirls transports you to a revolutionary time in American music history. Dreamgirls charts the tumultuous journey of a young female singing trio, from Chicago, Illinois called ‘The Dreams’, as they learn the hard lesson that show business is as tough as it is fabulous and features the classic songs ‘And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going’, ‘I Am Changing’, ‘Listen’ and ‘One Night Only’.
This long-awaited 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!).
Unless otherwise notified on this site, 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.
