Dreamgirls is one of those musicals with a whole load of singing in the first half and a stronger focus on plot and character development in the second. I went to the Savoy Theatre wanting the show to really shine, and live up to the hype that’s been surrounding it for some time. I was actually … [Read more...]
Dreamgirls Savoy Theatre Tickets London West End
Thirty-five years after the groundbreaking original Broadway production, this UK and West End premiere of the sensational and iconic Tony Award®-winning musical DREAMGIRLS is now playing at the Savoy Theatre, London.
DREAMGIRLS transports you to a revolutionary time in American music history and charts the tumultuous journey of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois called ‘The Dreams’. They learn the hard lesson that show business is as tough as it is fabulous.
DREAMGIRLS features the classic songs ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’, ‘I Am Changing’, ‘Listen’ and ‘One Night Only’. 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.
Dreamgirls Review: ‘an overwhelmingly positive show’
I wonder, though, if the few sober elements in this musical are amplified by the sheer heartening nature of the rest of it. The show does have, undoubtedly, a definitive ‘wow’ factor, and at the end of the day, I came out feeling that I had seen a good show. More of a concert than anything else, it’s loud and unapologetic, glitzy and glamorous, all-out, all-American fun. As long as that is borne in mind, audiences are assured of an enjoyable two-and-a-half hours. And with the world at large being what it is at the moment, an overwhelmingly positive show like Dreamgirls could not have landed in the West End at a more appropriate time.
