Dreamgirls

by Tom Eyen

Dreamgirls
Dreamgirls follows Deena, Effie, and Lorrell as their pursuit of music raises them to superstardom and forever changes the course of American music. Loosely based on the career of the Supremes, the show tracks the trio of young black singers as they work their way from talent shows to the national stage, against the backdrop of the Civil Rights era. Featuring hit songs like “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” and “I Am Changing,” Dreamgirls is an energetic, joyful musical about fame, friendship, and the racial and gender politics of black music of the 60s.
