Based on the stories of real-life music icons, The Supremes, James Brown, and others, Dreamgirls offers a behind-the-scenes look at the music industry of the 60s. Also, it tells the story of the R&B group, The Dreams. Starting out as a trio of singers and friends, Effie, Deena, and Lorrell attempt to make it big in the vibrant music landscape of the 1960s. But as the band’s success grows, their relationships deteriorate.
Featuring songs such as “Dreamgirls,” “And I’m Telling You,” and “One Night Only,” the musical was adapted into the 2006 motion picture starring Jennifer Hudson, Beyoncé, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Danny Glover, and Anika Noni Rose.
“Dreamgirls takes you behind the scenes of the music business during the Motown era. The rise of the Dreams is incredibly compelling, while also showing the struggle that comes with fame,” said Carnegie Theatre Director Maggie Perrino.
