Sony Masterworks Broadway is proud to release the highly-anticipated Original London Cast Recording of the hit West End Musical ‘Dreamgirls’, in a stunning new double-album recorded LIVE at London’s Savoy Theatre.
In November 2016 after 35 years and 13 awards (including 6 Tony Awards, 5 Drama desk Awards and 2 Grammy Awards), this brand new production of ‘Dreamgirls’ finally received its UK premiere. The show stars the sensational American singer and actress Amber Riley as Effie White, and has received unanimous praise from both audience and critics alike.
This definitive album includes the most iconic songs from the musical such as ‘And I am Telling You I’m Not Going’, ‘I Am Changing’, ‘Listen’ and ‘One Night Only’ and is a must-have for all ‘Dreamgirls’ and musical fans.
With book and lyrics by Tom Eyen, the album is produced by composer Henry Krieger and captures the on-stage exhilaration of the original London cast, the 14-piece band and the audience.
After a thirty-five year wait, DREAMGIRLS finally arrives in London!
This much-anticipated new production is directed and choreographed by the hugely successful, Tony and Olivier award-winning Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin, Something Rotten!) and Amber Riley* (Glee) plays ‘Effie White’.
Featuring the classic songs ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’, ‘I Am Changing’, ‘One Night Only’ and ‘Listen’, DREAMGIRLS follows the journey of a young female singing group from Chicago and will transport you to a revolutionary time in American music history. The trio ‘The Dreams’, must learn the tough lesson that show business and stardom isn’t always as glamorous as it seems.
