Olivier Award-winning, Broadway musical Dreamgirls plays at the West End's Savoy Theatre London to sold out houses. Directed by Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin), Dreamgirls is the musical inspired by hits from The Supremes, The Shirelles and James Brown. With an award-winning book and score by Tom Eyen and Henry Krieger, the 1981 Broadway show was such a success that it received six Tony Awards and thirteen nominations. Dreamgirls follows girl group The Dreamettes as they rise to fame as backing vocalists, but they soon discover that fame and fortune may not be as easy as they first thought. When the supremely talented Effie is replaced by the more attractive Deena, tensions and rifts begin to appear in the once sisterly group. Including beloved numbers such as "Family", "I Am Changing", "One Night Only" and the heart-wrenching "And I Am Telling You", Dreamgirls is an utterly dazzling night out.
