New Production Pictures released of the DREAMGIRLS London company

The critically acclaimed, hit UK premiere of Dreamgirls has been nominated for five Olivier Awards and stars American actress and singer Amber Riley, Marisha Wallace and Karen Mav sharing the role of Effie White (Amber Riley does not perform Mondays or matinees), Liisi LaFontaine as Deena Jones and Asmeret Ghebremichael as Lorrell Robinson making up the soulful singing trio ‘The Dreams’. 

Dreamgirls transports you to a revolutionary time in American music history. Dreamgirls charts the tumultuous journey of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois called ‘The Dreams’, as they learn the hard lesson that show business is as tough as it is fabulous, and features the classic songs And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going, I Am Changing, Listen and One Night Only.

With Book and Lyrics by Tom Eyen and Music by Henry Krieger, the original Broadway production of Dreamgirls, Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett opened in 1981 and subsequently won six Tony Awards®. The original cast recording won two Grammy awards for Best Musical Album and Best Vocal Performance for Jennifer Holliday’s ‘And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going.’ In 2006 it was adapted into an Oscar winning motion picture starring BeyoncĂ© Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx.

The highly anticipated Original London Cast Recording of the new, hit West End musical Dreamgirls, is released on Sony Masterworks Broadway.
