Completely wonderful. We were in the rear mezzanine and the seats were just fine. It might actually be better to be seated where you can enjoy the entire stage. Wonderful performances and the costumes a delight. I would go back to see it...continued

I thought Dreamgirls was fantastic! Took my 12 year old daughter to it and she loved it as well. We are both fans of the movie version and this production did not dissapoint.

The entire cast is wonderful but a definite stand out is the "Jimmy"...continued

Dreamgirls comes to the Ahmanson direct from New York’s Apollo Theater, where it earned Goldstar’s Roar of the Crowd award.

Description

Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, Dreamgirls tells the  rags-to-riches story of an up and coming, 1960s girl group, and the triumphs  and tribulations that come with fame and fortune.

Direct from Harlem’s world famous Apollo Theater in New York City, a  brand new, sensational stage production of Dreamgirls comes to the Ahmanson!

With music by Academy®  Award nominee Henry Krieger and book and lyrics by Tony® and Grammy®-Award winner Tom Eyen, Dreamgirls  features the unforgettable hits: “And I Am Telling You I’m Not  Going,” “One Night Only” and “Listen.”

Broadway director and choreographer Robert Longbottom (_Bye Bye Birdie) and co-choreographer Shane Sparks (TV’s So You Think You Can Dance_), along  with some of Broadway’s top designers, re-envision this Tony® and Academy® Award winning musical so it sparkles  like never before!
