The Tony Award®-Winning Musical

First a smash Broadway musical then an award-winning motion picture, Dreamgirls captures the spirit and hope of Motown when a girl group from Chicago makes it big. In a business controlled by men, the female trio fights for recognition, fellowship and love as superstardom challenges their musical and cultural identity. A rich, glowing spectacle about the price of show-biz success, Dreamgirls sizzles with sparkling dance and R&B soul.

Starring Hairspray’s Nova Y. Payton as Effie.

Featuring the hit songs “Dreamgirls,” “And I am Telling You I’m Not Going” and “One Night Only”.

“One word only will do: Spectacular.” – Chicago Sun-Times

Sponsored by the Bernard Family Foundation with additional support from Tony Garro, MD
