Broadway in the Hood brings to life the fabulous, high-energy, Tony and Academy Award-winning hit musical DREAMGIRLS to The Smith Center for the Performing Arts for one performance only on May 28 at 1:00p.m. (Pictured: Moya Angela).
Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, DREAMGIRLS tells the story of “The Dreams,” an up-and-coming 1960s all-female singing group inspired by the career of Diana Ross and The Supremes as they experience the triumphs and tribulations that accompany their pursuit of fame and fortune in the tumultuous music industry.
DREAMGIRLS premiered on Broadway in December of 1981 and features unforgettable songs by Academy Award nominee Henry Krieger including “And I Am Telling You,” “One Night Only” and “I Am Changing” with book and lyrics by Tony and Grammy award winner Tom Eyen. Through several revivals and an award-winning 2006 motion picture adaptation, it has remained an audience favorite for more than three decades.
DREAMGIRLS will feature the local cast of Broadway in the Hood performers as well as Travis Cloer, currently starring as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys Las Vegas and Moya Angela, who starred on Broadway and in touring productions of DREAMGIRLS, The Lion King, Ghost the musical and many others.
