This LibGuide was created to accompany the Visions & Voices event: Dream Girls. On Friday April 2nd, USC students will attend the Ahmanson Theater presentation of Dreamgirls. Read more about the event at the Visions & Voices website.
About the production: 'The dynamic production Dreamgirls has won six Tonys, two Oscars and two Grammys since its Broadway premiere in 1981. Drawing inspiration from such R&B acts as The Supremes and James Brown, the show follows the tumultuous career of Motown girl group The Dreamettes as it climbs to the top of the charts, revealing the triumphs and tribulations that come with fame and fortune. This revival of the show, launched at Harlem’s Apollo Theater in November 2009, will include new costumes, innovative set design, and new and revised songs."
