Savoy Theatre, Strand, London, United Kingdom, WC2R 0ET

The iconic R&B musical Dreamgirls receives its UK and West End premiere at the Savoy Theatre, with Glee star Amber Riley leading the powerful tale of musical revolution in 1960s America.

In Chichago, Illinois, an aspiring female singing trio, ‘The Dreams’, seek stardom. Theirs is a tale of ultimate determination, as their turbulent journey to the top sees them overcome all manner of obstacles: show business proves as tough as it is fabulous.

Featuring the immortal songs ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,’, ‘I Am Changing’ and ‘One Night Only’, the show caught the public eye in receiving six Tony Awards upon its 1981 premiere production on Broadway, eventually being adapted as a feature film in 2006 starring Beyoncé Knowles.

It receives a long-awaited UK premiere with direction by Casey Nicholaw, best known his work on West End hit The Book Of Mormon and upcoming Disney show Aladdin. A show to demand that audiences 'Listen.'
