The Oklahoma Eagle Newswire

Theatre Tulsa is planning the launch of its second Broadway Series musical, “Dreamgirls,” which opens Oct. 8.

“Dreamgirls” follows the story of a young female singing trio from Chicago called “The Dreams” who become music superstars. The show is based on the show business aspirations and successes of R&B acts such as The Supremes, The Shirelles, James Brown, Jackie Wilson, and others.

The musical originally opened in 1981 on Broadway, later receiving 13 Tony Award nominations, including the Best Musical, and ultimately winning six.

The show was later adapted into a motion picture in 2006 that starred Jamie Foxx, Beyoncé, Eddie

Murphy, Jennifer Hudson, Danny Glover, Anika Noni Rose, and Keith Robinson. “Dreamgirls” features music by Henry Krieger, and lyrics and book by Tom Eyen.

Theatre Tulsa’s production stars DeVon Douglass as Effie, Majeste Pearson as Deena, and Kubbi as Lorrel.

The cast also includes: Obum Ukabam, Nash McQuarters, Graceson Todd, Dion Berryhill, Cornelius

Johnson, Justin Daniels, Dionne Lambert, Oti-Lisa Brown, Mecca Marie and Kimberly Martin.
