Dream Girls the musical is set to make it’s UK premiere at the Savoy Theatre this November with Glee’s Amber Riley in the role of Effie White.
Check out Amber smashing one of the biggest numbers from the show, An I Am Telling You.
1960s. Curtis Taylor, Jr., a car salesman, breaks into the music business by signing a trio of young girls called The Dreamettes. After establishing his own label Curtis makes the Dreamettes into a headline act as the Dreams, but not before demoting their hefty big-voiced lead singer, Effie White, and putting the softer-voiced looker, Deena Jones, in front. Through this show we follow as Effie struggles against the harsh reality of the music industry and fights to get her spotlight.
Previews begin in November and the show is set to officially open in December. Ticket will go on sale from Spring 2016 and running dates are yet to be confirmed.
