Dreamgirls UK Tour announced

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

SONIA Friedman Productions has announced that hit musical Dreamgirls will embark on its first ever UK tour, opening in Bristol in September 2020 before dates in Milton Keynes, Blackpool, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Birmingham, with further venues throughout 2021 still to be announced.

Tickets will go on sale this week with specific box office information available at www.dreamgirlsthemusical.co.uk/.

Featuring the classic songs And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going, Listen and One Night Only, this multi-award-winning new production of Dreamgirls had its critically acclaimed West End Premiere in December 2016 at London’s Savoy Theatre, 35 years after opening on Broadway.

Meet The Dreams – Effie, Lorrell and Deena – three talented young singers in the turbulent 1960s, a revolutionary time in American music history. Join the three friends as they embark upon a musical rollercoaster ride through a world of fame, fortune and the ruthless realities of show business, testing their friendships to the very limit.

In 2006, Dreamgirls was adapted into an Oscar® winning motion picture starring Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx.

This award-winning production is directed and choreographed by Olivier® and Tony® Award winning Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Mean Girls, Disney’s Aladdin and Something Rotten!), with set and costume design by Tim Hatley, lighting design by Hugh Vanstone, hair design by Josh Marquette and music supervision by Nick Finlow.

Casting for the tour will be announced soon.
