    This new multi-media production of “Dreamgirls” tells the story of “The Dreams” ─ a budding girl-group during the ‘60s, inspired by the career of Diana Ross and The Supremes ─ as they wade through the pleasure and pain that follows many music groups seeking a career of riches and glory.
    The winner of six Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards, “Dreamgirls” premiered on Broadway in 1981. Through multiple revivals and an award-winning 2006 motion picture adaptation, it’s remained an audience favorite for more than three decades.
