Kravis kicks off Broadway season with Dreamgirls

Posted:
WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The Kravis Center kicks off their Broadway season with DREAMGIRLS this week. To celebrate opening night, the Kravis Center hosted a pre-party at BB Kings. Fox 29 was there on the Red Carpet to capture another start to a fabulous season!

Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, DREAMGIRLS tells the story of an up-and-coming 1960s singing girl group, and the triumphs and tribulations that come with fame and fortune. Hopeful talents Deena Jones, Lorrell Robinson and Effie White are performing as The Dreamettes when ambitious agent Curtis Taylor, Jr. discovers them and begins to guide their quickly rising career. However, when the beautiful Deena emerges as the star of the group rather than the full-voiced Effie, the girls are brought to personal and professional crossroads. 

The original Broadway production of DREAMGIRLS opened December 20, 1981, ran for 1,521 performances and garnered six Tony Awards. The original Broadway production was directed by Michael Bennett and choreographed by Bennett and Michael Peters. DREAMGIRLS was adapted into a motion picture by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, and opened in December 2006 receiving two Academy Awards and six Golden Globes. This all-new production of DREAMGIRLS premiered at Harlem's legendary Apollo Theater in New York City on November 22, 2009, before embarking on this international tour.

DREAMGIRLS is at the Kravis Center through Sunday. Purchase Tickets.
