Why See Dreamgirls?
Houston lives the dream in 2017...
After its hit run on Broadway and subsequent national tour in 2009, Houston's Sarofim Hall and Theatre Under The Stars present their full staging of super-hit musical Dreamgirls in April 2017, that first hit the Great White Way in 1981; follow the triumph and torment of show business is examined in this musical about a Supremes-like female singing group that fights its way to the top amidst turmoil, jealousy and conflict. The soaring Motown score includes "Steppin' to the Bad Side" "Cadillac Car" and "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going."
Hopeful singing talents Deena Jones, Lorrell Robinson and Effie White are performing as The Dreamettes, when ambitious agent Curtis Taylor, Jr. discovers them. Landing them a job as backup singers for the soul and rock 'n' roll sensation James 'Thunder' Early, he smartly begins to mold their rising career. However Deena and Effie come to blows when the former is lauded as the group's star for her beauty, rather than the full-figured and vocally more talented Effie, and the dream threatens to unravel as fast as it began.
