Dream Girls | Curran Theatre
Starts August 24th
Before Dream Girls launched the career of Jennifer Hudson, it was a bright light on the Broadway stage in 1981, winning six Tony Awards after being nominated for fourteen. The musical sensation captures the rise of The Dreams, a Motown girl trio drawing inspiration of such R&B stars from the 1960s asThe Supremes, James Brown, Jackie Wilson and The Shirelles. Dream Girls includes priceless hits like “One Night Only,” “Listen” and “And I Am Telling You”that will leave you singing long after the final curtain close. Robert Longbottom handles directing responsibilities, and Academy Award nominee Henry Kriger takes on music and lyrics. Dream Girls is heading to San Francisco’s Curran Theatre on August 24 – September 26.
