Amber Riley is slaying London audiences as the unstoppable “Effie White” in the new UK production of “Dreamgirls.” The show, which is currently in previews, features the former “Glee” star alongside as the sensational Ibinabo Jack as “Lorell Robinson” and the beautiful Liisi LaFontaine as “Deena Jones.”
As previously mentioned, “Dreamgirls” is being presented for the very first time in London as part of the 35th anniversary celebration of the original Broadway show that debuted on December 20, 1981. That production featured Sheryl Lee Ralph, Loretta Devine and Jennifer Holliday as “The Dreams” along with the show stopping musical numbers “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” “I Am Changing” and “One Night Only.”
I recently talked to Ms. Ralph about the iconic musical and her return to Broadway in “Wicked.” Click here to listen at what she had to say and why ‘Dreamgirls” was the “best and worst of times” of her career.
