Marisha Wallace, Moya Angela and Karen Mav star in the West End revival of popular Broadway musical Dreamgirls, which charts the rocky rise of girl group “The Dreams”. Premiering at London's Savoy Theatre in November 2016, the sensational musical continues to play to packed out audiences, having sold thousands of tickets, starring three phenomenal vocalists that share the role which earned Jennifer Hudson a 2006 Academy Award.

Dreamgirls, the musical, originally opened on Broadway in 1981 and was nominated for a staggering thirteen Tony Awards. After winning six Tony Awards and five Drama Desk Awards in 1982, the musical went on to win two Grammy Awards, including Best Cast Show Album. In 2006, the film that starred Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson and Jamie Foxx was commended with several nominations.

Set in 1960’s Chicago during the dawning era of Rhythm and Blues, Dreamgirls follows three sensational singers as they journey to the top of the charts. “The Dreams” perform regularly and are soon discovered by Curtis Taylor, a former car salesman turned manager. Soon, the girls shoot to fame but are quick to realise that fame is not as fabulous as they once thought, when lead vocalist Effie is replaced by the more dazzling Deena. Based on the successes of music from The Supremes, The Shirelles and James Brown, Dreamgirls includes numbers such as "Family", "I Am Changing", "One Night Only" and the show-stopping "And I Am Telling You".

Singers Marisha Wallace, Moya Angela and Karen Mav share the iconic role of Effie White, alongside Asmeret Ghebremichael as Lorrell Robinson, Brennyn Lark as Deena Jones and Kimmy Edwards as Michelle Morris. Casting also includes Tosh Wanogho-Maud as Jimmy Early, Durone Stokes as C.C. White, Delroy Brown as Marty and Joe Aaron Reid as Curtis Taylor Jr.

Ensemble casting includes Michael Afemaré, Callum Aylott, Georgia Bradshaw, Jabari Braham, Ashford Campbell, Sanchia Amber Clarke, Nicole Raquel Dennis, Nicole Deon, Rhiane Drummond, Ashlee Irish, Emma Louise Jones, Ashley Luke Lloyd, Samira Mighty, Jayde Nelson, Aston New, Sean Parkins, Kirk Patterson, Rohan Pinnock-Hamilton, Ryan Reid, Rohan Richards and Joshua Robinson.

Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin) directs the London revival, which features the original Award-winning book and score by Tom Eyen and Henry Krieger. Dreamgirls is produced by the prolific Sonia Friedman, whose shows have been countlessly nominated for Olivier Awards.
