Originally having opened on Broadway on December 20th, 1981, this dazzling musical was nominated for an astounding 13 Tony Awards and went on to become a critically-acclaimed motion picture starring Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy, and Jamie Foxx. Based on the lives and careers of Diana Ross and the Supremes, James Brown, The Shirelles, and other R&B groups, Dreamgirls tells the story of a Chicago girl group who become musical superstars. Set in the 1960s, it contains such unforgettable songs as “I’m Telling You I’m Not Going,” “I Am Changing,” “We Are Family,” and “When I First Saw You.” It is credited with shining a light onto the struggles of African American and female artists as they fight to gain success and acceptance in the entertainment business.
