The performances were generally very good, although the singing was overmiked to the point of aural pain at times. However, I did not like the disrespectful behavior of the audience-- constant flash photography and people talking throughout the performance. And one person in my row was eating popcorn loudly during the first act. Why bother to have rules about food and flash photography if they're not enforced? By the way, I don't know much about how Equity rules work, or if this theater is even covered since it's not in LA County, but this would clearly not be an Equity waiver theater (it's well over 99 seats), and none of the actors was identified as being an Equity member. The performances were certainly professional, and the actors certainly deserve better than having the audience distract them with flash photography!
Dreamgirls is a show about a time in American musical history when what is called rhythm and blues blended with other styles of popular music creating a new American sound. Act One is set in the fabulous sixties-a time when we were still screaming at Elvis and listening to the Beatles, but were dancing to the new beat of countless girl and boy groups like The Supremes, The Marvelettes, The Temptations and The Shirelles. Dreamgirls is not just about the singing and the dancing and the performing. The play is also about the behind-the-scenes reality of the entertainment industry-the business part of show business that made possible this cultural phenomenon. Act Two shows the creation and the arrival of disco-though the word is never used in the script. The subject matter of this play deals with a musical contribution to America of such importance that only now-two decades later-are we beginning to understand.
