BWW Feature: DREAMGIRLS at TUTS
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Apr 3, 2017

Walking into the rehearsal studios at TUTS had a different energy on today. I thought I was at the New 42nd St. Rehearsal Studios in NYC, but I was here in H-Town awaiting the gorgeously talented cast of DREAMGIRLS. The energy was high and every press rep in the room had memories of their first introduction to this fabulous piece of American Musical Theatre. The day began with a brief introduction of the cast by TUTS Artistic Supervisor/ show director, Sheldon Epps.
