This summer, original 'Effie,' Jennifer Holliday will return to DREAMGIRLS, playing the role at the MUNY in St. Louis. According the the MUNY's official website, Milton Craig Nealy will star as Jimmy, alongside previously announced Demetria McKinney as Deena, Jenelle Lynn Randall as Lorrell, Muny veteran Ken Page as Marty, Christopher Jackson as Curtis, Karla Mosely as Michelle, and Tommar Wilson as C.C.

DREAMGIRLS opened on December 20, 1981 at the Imperial Theatre. The show was nominated for thirteen Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical, winning six. It was later adapted into a motion picture from DreamWorks and Paramount Pictures in 2006, starring Hudson, Beyonce, Anika Noni Rose, Eddie Murphy and more.

Dreamgirls features a blockbuster score and the landmark song "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" with book and lyrics by Tom Eyen, and music by Henry Krieger.

The Muny's season - its 94th - will also include ALADDIN, CHICAGO, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, PIRATES! and THE KING AND I. For more information on DREAMGIRLS, and the rest of the 2012 Muny season, visit www.muny.org.
