CURRENT PRODUCTION: DREAMGIRLS
The iconic Tony and Olivier Award®-winning musical Dreamgirls invites your soul to soar at the Savoy Theatre, transporting audiences to a revolutionary time in American music history.
Drawing inspiration from the career stories of R&B acts including James Brown, Jackie Wilson and The Shirelles, and thirty-five years after the groundbreaking original Broadway production, Dreamgirls follows the tumultuous journey of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois, called ‘The Dreams’.
Through their rollercoaster ride to the top of the charts, the trio soon learn the hard lesson that show business can often be as tough as it is fabulous, and stardom isn’t always as glamorous as it initially seems. With an extraordinary story and the unforgettable, spine-tingling vocals that are sending audiences wild at every single show, this spectacular musical production soars with composer Henry Krieger’s classic songs: And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going, I Am Changing, Listen, One Night Only and more.
