Cutting Edge Theater presents "Dreamgirls", onstage for one night only on Friday, February 24, 2023.
Meet The Dreams – Effie, Lorrell and Deena – three talented young singers who began as a group called the Dreamettes in the turbulent 1960s, a revolutionary time in American music history. Join the three friends as they embark upon a musical roller coaster ride through a world of fame, fortune and the ruthless realities of show business, testing their friendships to the very limit.
They enter a talent show held in New York's Apollo Theatre. Disappointed in their failure to win the contest, they attract the attention of a sly tongued talent agent named Curtis Taylor, Jr., whose connections get the girls hired as a backup act to James Thunder Early, a rising pop singing star. They go on tour and are widely acclaimed. The Dreams go on to achieve international stardom and a string of chart-topping hits. But life on top is rocky and tumultuous. The much-acclaimed musical features the classic songs "And I Am Telling You", "I’m Not Going", "Listen", "I Am Changing" and "One Night Only".
