Before it was adapted into an Oscar-winning film, Dreamgirls was a hit Broadway musical. With music by Henry Krieger and lyrics and book by Tom Eyen, the play is based on the successes and triumphs of music talents such as The Supremes, The Shirelles, James Brown and Jackie Wilson. Through the story of a female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois called The Dreams, the musical explores the conflicts and triumphs that result from commercial success and celebrity within the music industry. Initially opening on December 20, 1981 at the Imperial Theatre, Dream Girls garnered immense success, including six Tony wins. Featuring songs like I'm Lookin' for Something, Goin' Downtown and And I'm Telling You, the show has been frequently revived and taken on multiple tours across the nation. Those who acquire Dream Girls tickets are sure to have an electrifying night in the theater.
