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 playing at the Savoy Theatre, London.
Nominated for 5 Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, 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.

‘The secret of “Dreamgirls” is the human voice and it drives audiences wild’
