“Dreamgirls” is a glitzy, glamorous look at the American music industry in the 1960s. An ambitious girl group, The Dreamettes, are on their way to the top of the charts with the help of their friends, family and shady manager. The show also deals with the harsh realities of being a black performer in the 60s, when these artists were working hard to change the face of American music. Relationships are tested and hearts break as their success grows and grows. Is fame more powerful than friendship?
“Dreamgirls” was nominated for five Olivier Awards in 2017, including Best New Musical, Best Costumes, and Outstanding Achievement in Music. With powerhouse vocals, heartbreaking drama, and beautiful songs that you’ll remember forever, “Dreamgirls” is more than a “one night only” experience.
The show is said to be based loosely on the story of Diana Ross and the Supremes, their rise to fame and the real relationships within the group.
To create the dazzling crystal curtain seen in the latter part of the show, 60,000 crystals were provided by Swarovski!
