The Dillard University theater program will continue its 77th season with a
six-performance run of “Dreamgirls,” the smash-hit Broadway musical that became
an Oscar-winning motion picture. The show opens on Friday, April 5 and runs
through Sunday, April 14 in Cook Theatre on Dillard’s campus.
“Dreamgirls” captures the spirit and hope of the Motown era through the story
of a Chicago girl group that makes it big. In a business controlled by men, this
trio of women fights for recognition and and love while superstardom challenges
their musical and cultural identity. A glowing spectacle about the price of
showbiz success, “Dreamgirls” sizzles with sparkling dance and R&B soul.
Dillard University’s production of “Dreamgirls” is directed by Troy R.
Poplous from Tom Eyen’s original book and Harry Krieger’s timeless music.
Tickets are $20, and $15 for seniors and students. To purchase tickets, call the
Dillard box office at (504) 816-4857.
