, the Broadway classic with six Tony Awards to its name, is in Shanghai now for a few more days. The original production of Dreamgirls staged a 1,521 consecutive performances after its Broadway premier in 1981. Definitely says something about it. We went to an invite after its first night in Shanghai for a sneak peek, and liked what we heard and saw. The rags-to-riches storyline about the show biz may seem a bit obsolete today, and we’re way too late to catch the glam of Jennifer Holliday, who starred Effie in the original production, but luckily the music remains. Gospel, R&B, pre-Disco funky sassiness, interwoven together with soul – the sound of Dreamgirls is all about that old Motown flair. This is your chance to hear tunes like "Listen", “And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going” and "Dreamgirls" performed live. Tickets to Dreamgirls start at 400rmb on SmartTicket
and are going fast.
