Based on show business aspirations and successes of acts such as The Supremes, The Shirelles, James Brown and many more, this hit Broadway musical follows three hopeful young singers plunged into the marvelous and merciless world of the music industry after getting their big break at an amateur competition.
When ambitious manager Curtis Taylor Jr. spots The Dreamettes at a talent show, he offers the chance of a lifetime: to be backup singers for national star, Jimmy Early. Taylor takes creative control of the group and eventually plunges the singers into the spotlight. But when backup singer Deena Jones gets pushed to sing lead, Effie White is forced to the back, taking a journey of heartache and renewed strength, all at the mercy of the ever-changing music industry. Winner of six Tony Award, Dreamgirls features hit songs like “I Am Changing”, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going”, and of course, “Dreamgirls”.
