Don’t bother flying to New York to see a Broadway Show….Go see “Dreamgirls” at Cupcake Theatre. I seldom write a review but this musical was truly remarkable.
It was a magnificent Motown musical. The entire audience was dancing in their seats. The musical was directed and choreographed by Tor Campbell who deserves a hundred accolades. Bravo!! The show has an amazing 30-member cast with most of the members triple threats. Every one of them was spectacular. I originally saw “Dreamgirls” on Broadway years ago, but the vocals in this NoHo show truly out shined the NY “Dreamgirls” cast. There are about 15 very well-trained dancers in the chorus whose wonderful energy illuminated the show. The cast of many musicals often cannot give the best acting performances, but to my surprise, these talented singers and dancers were also just as talented in the acting department. I am not surprised that this production is up for the NAACP Awards and is the highest rated musical in Los Angeles on Goldstar.
