Dreamgirls Opens On West End In London 35 Years After Broadway Debut by Photojournalist Lisa Pacino
The long-awaited UK premiere of Dreamgirls opened last night, Wednesday 14 December 2016 at the Savoy Theatre in London, 35 years after originally opening on Broadway in 1981. Last night’s opening received rave reviews giving hope it will return to Broadway.
American actress and singer Amber Riley stars as Effie White and is joined in Dreamgirls by Liisi LaFontaine as Deena Jones and Ibinabo Jack as Lorrell Robinson making up the soulful singing trio The Dreams. Joe Aaron Reid plays Curtis Taylor, Jr., Adam J. Bernard plays Jimmy Early, Tyrone Huntley plays C.C. White, Nicholas Bailey plays Marty, Lily Frazer plays Michelle Morris with Ruth Brown, and Karen Mav alternating the role of Effie White at performances when Amber Riley is not scheduled to perform.
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”. —Sources Broadway World, Playbill
