“All of my life I’ve been a fool
Who said I could do it all alone.
How many friends have I already lost?
And how many dark nights have I known?
Walking down that long road. There was nothing you could buy.
All those years of darkness
Could make a person blind.
But now I can see that
I am changing.”
The Dreamgirls movie has been quite popular when it was shown in 2006. However, I was not able to watch the movie, and when I finally catched it on a cable channel, I didn’t quite get the story so I channel surfed instead. Eleven years after it was shown, I am glad my beautiful sister “forced” me to watch the West End musical. As with most things, the less expectations you have the more you will be amazed at how exceptional something is. That’s my experience watching this great production which was was staged in The Savoy Theatre.
The cast were magnificent, giving heartfelt rendition of the classic songs we have come to love such as “Listen”,“I am Changing”, and groove to “One Night Only”. I got teary-eyed when Listen was sung. I was so engrossed with the adventures of Effie, Lorrell, and Deena and wished the acts could be longer!☺️
If you haven’t watched it yet, do catch it as it is still being staged. 💖
