Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, this new multimedia driven production of "Dreamgirls" tells the story of "The Dreams," an up-and-coming 1960s girl 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.

Winner of six Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards, "Dreamgirls" premiered on Broadway in December of 1981. Through several revivals and an award-winning 2006 motion picture adaptation, it has remained an audience favorite for more than three decades.

The show features hits by Academy Award nominee Henry Krieger, including "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going," "One Night Only" and "Listen," with book and lyrics by Tony and Grammy Award winner Tom Eyen.

This "Dreamgirls" production was created by Broadway veterans including Broadway director and choreographer Bobby Longbottom (with additional choreography from "So You Think You Can Dance's" Shane Sparks), and scenery, costumes, and lighting designed by the multiple Tony Award-winning team of Robin Wagner, William Ivey Long, and Ken Billington. The video design, which figures prominently in the story telling, was created by Howard Werner, also the video designer on "Spiderman" on Broadway.

"Dreamgirls" is part of the Boyett Petroleum Broadway Series at the Gall Center for the Arts.
