About this show

Dreamgirls exploded on Broadway in 1981, a timeless work about three young women with big dreams of show business glory, unaware of just what those dreams would cost. Loosely based on the legacies of such 60's girl groups as the Supremes and Marvelettes, the show ultimately zeros in on one woman who somehow manages to find herself, through all the traps and temptations, seductions and betrayals of the cutthroat music business. With hits like "I'm Telling You, I'm Not Going" and "Fake Your Way to the Top," the sweeping score mixes 60's pop, funky grooves and Broadway pizzazz in a way that might have you dancing in the aisles. "The best Effie acting performance - ever." - Henry Krieger, composer of Dreamgirls "Every aspect of this revival is superb!" - Philadelphia Theater Review "The best holiday ticket in town!" - Philadelphia Weekly "...director Richard Parison, Jr. delivers a high voltage production." - Philadelphia City Paper "Payton's voice is a wonder... it's impossible to be unmoved by the torrent of emotion she conveys." - Talkin' Broadway Box Office Hours: M-F 10:00 am - 6:00 pm, Sat-Sun 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
