In the 20 years since it opened on Broadway, Dreamgirls has acquired a mythic reputation few musicals achieve. With a vibrant score by Henry Krieger that captures the Motown sound of the 60's, coupled with a backstage story full of ebullience, sadness, and soul, and legendary staging and direction by Michael Bennett, it told the story of a singing group's rise from obscurity to pop stardom. The original cast album spawned the #1 R&B single, "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going," (sung by Jennifer Holliday), a Grammy Award, won six 1982 Tonys, and played more than 1,500 performances. What made it great can be experienced COMPLETE for the first time in this 2 CD anniversary recording of a one-time only performance produced by the Actor's Studio and starring a host of today's most coveted Tony Award winning talent: Heather Headley (Elton John/Tim Rice's AIDA) as Lorrell, Audra McDonald (three-time Tony winner and RAGTIME star)as Deena, Lillias White (THE LIFE) as Effie, plus Darius de Haas (as C.C. White), Norm Lewis (as Curtis Taylor, Jr..), Billy Porter (as James Thunder Early), James Stovall (as Marty), and Tamara Tunie (as Michelle Morris), plus Brian Stoke Mitchell (RAGTIME, KISS ME KATE) and others.
