A dreamy stage spectacular

Closing 12 January 2019

Don't miss this musical biopic based on the story of The Supremes. First hitting the Broadway stage in 1981, in 2005 it enjoyed an adaptation to the big screen starring Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, and Anika Noni-Rose, before opening in London to rave reviews in 2016.

With a powerful score and thought-provoking story, glittering sets and costumes, Dreamgirls is the ultimate theatrical experience. Expect to be on your feet at some of the powerhouse performances, we promise you - you're gonna love it!

What is it about?

Hopeful talents Deena Jones, Lorrell Robinson and Effie White are performing as "The Dreamettes" when ambitious agent Curtis Taylor, Jr. discovers them.

After quickly landing them a job as backup singers for the soul and rock 'n roll sensation James "Thunder" Early he begins to guide their quickly rising career, and dictates their every move. However, when the beautiful Deena emerges as the star of the group rather than the full-voiced Effie, the girls' rivalry leads to a personal and professional crossroads for the trio.

With a powerful score and thought-provoking story, Dreamgirls has touched audiences all the way from 1980s Broadway to 21st century Hollywood, introducing some legendary breakthrough performances along the way.

Everything is well judged. Everything works. From the direction and choreography to the set, the lights, the score, the band. From the top of Olympus to the depths of Hades. It's heavenly.
