EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (April 3, 2023) – The powerhouse musical “Dreamgirls,” with book and lyrics by Tom Eyen and music by Henry Krieger, is one of the most celebrated American musicals of the 20th century. It is a sweeping and inspirational journey through American pop music that chronicles one Motown girl group’s rise from obscurity to superstardom. Inspired by the stories of R&B’s popular superstars, including The Supremes, James Brown, and the roster of artists that helped change the landscape of popular music in the 60s and 70s, “Dreamgirls” is a true depiction of the music business.


Main characters Effie, Lorrell and Deena have grown up together. They are young, determined and talented. They have a dream to be the next big girl group on the radio, no matter the cost. When a ruthless manager discovers them at a local talent show with his own agenda for fame, they are propelled into a world where dreams come true, and success can tear apart even the strongest of relationships.

This depiction of “Dreamgirls,” directed by Miller Lucky Jr., with musical direction by Jonovan Cooper, Ph.D., and choreography by Jordan Hankerson, is a must-see story of ambition, hope and betrayal.
