Thirty-five years after the groundbreaking original Broadway production, this UK and West End premiere of the sensational and iconic Tony Award®-winning musical DREAMGIRLS is now in playing at the Savoy Theatre, London.
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 is 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) plays Effie White.
"Dreamgirls, Savoy Theatre, London, review: And, boy, does it hit the stage as if it means business"
"Dreamgirls review – fantastic ride on the showbiz rollercoaster"
"Dreamgirls review at Savoy Theatre, London – ‘a dream of a show’"
"Adam J Bernard - a Brit - as the disreputable womanising Jimmy Early, a pelvic-thrusting charmer in the James Brown mould, sends his legs into entertainingly electrified spasms and somehow manages to hold a note and attempt the splits at the same time."
"Adam J Bernard is an athletic and vocally attractive Early"
"Neither its score nor its story is the surprise it once was, but the secret of “Dreamgirls” is the human voice and, by letting larynxes loose, it drives audiences wild."
"Adam J Bernard as the James Brown-inspired Jimmy Early, was utterly electrifying"
