Dreamgirls

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

Thirty-five years after the groundbreaking original Broadway production, this UK and West End premiere of the sensational and iconic six-time Tony Award®-winning musical Dreamgirls is now playing at the Savoy Theatre, London, led by Glee star Amber Riley.

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 Riley plays Effie White.

*Amber Riley will play the role of Effie White for 7 out of 8 performances per week.  Currently the alternates Ruth Brown and Karen Mav will perform on Wednesday evenings, but this is subject to change and the producers cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist(s).
