Dreamgirls at Phoenix Theatre Company

"Inspired by acts like Diana Ross and The Supremes, Dreamgirls follows the journey of Effie, Deena, and Lorrell as they rise to stardom in the 60s – and quickly learn what’s beneath the glitz and glam of success. Fame, fortune, and competition push their friendship to the limit in this high-energy musical told through gospel, R&B, smooth pop, and disco – featuring hits like "And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going" and "One Night Only." You’re going to love this sensational story of sisterhood, perseverance, betrayal, and triumph – and question the price you’d pay for fame."
