DREAMGIRLS

The Tony Award®-Winning Musical

Book & Lyrics by Tom Eyen

  • Music by Henry Krieger
  • Original Broadway Production Directed & Choreographed by Michael Bennett
  • Orchestrations by Harold Wheeler
  • Produced on Broadway by Michael Bennett, Robert Avian, Geffen Records & The Shubert Organization
  • Directed by Matthew Gardiner

First a smash Broadway musical then an award-winning motion picture, Dreamgirls captures the spirit and hope of Motown when a girl group from Chicago makes it big. In a business controlled by men, the female trio fights for recognition, fellowship and love as superstardom challenges their musical and cultural identity. A rich, glowing spectacle about the price of show-biz success, Dreamgirls sizzles with sparkling dance and R&B soul.

DINNER BEFORE THE SHOW

One of the things I really love about Shirlington is the variety of restaurants to choose from.  This time around let's try the Extra Virgin Modern Italian Restaurant, located at 4053 Campbell Avenue.  I have a reservation for 16, so if you have changed your mind about joining us for dinner, please let me know ASAP so that I can update our reservation.  See you then!

    Sue, when the group meets for dinner, will we need to park in a garage specifically for Extra Virgin Italian Restaurant and then drive to one of the designated garages for Signature Theatre afterwards?

    Thanks again,
    Vinny
