FOX OPERATOR BILL MALONE OF FX ARTS will present the second production of its 2012-2013 BROADWAY SERIES of shows with the Tony Award-winning masterwork, DREAMGIRLS. DREAMGIRLS will dazzle audiences on Thursday, January 10 at the Fox Performing Arts Center, 3801 Mission Inn Avenue in Riverside.
Full of onstage joy and backstage drama, this new multi-media driven production of DREAMGIRLS tells the story of "The Dreams," an up-and-coming 1960s girl singing group - inspired by the career of Diana Ross and The Supremes - as they experience the triumphs and tribulations that accompany their pursuit of fame and fortune in the tumultuous music industry. The recent film version won an Academy Award for Jennifer Hudson.
Winner of six Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards, DREAMGIRLS premiered on Broadway in December of 1981. The Broadway version also featured additional Material by Willie Reale; Original Broadway Production Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett with orchestrations by Harold Wheeler.
DREAMGIRLS was originally produced on Broadway by Michael Bennett, Robert Avian, and David Geffen of Geffen Records and The Shubert Organization. Through several revivals and an award-winning 2006 motion picture adaptation, it has remained an audience favorite for more than three decades.
DREAMGIRLS features unforgettable hits by Academy Award nominee Henry Krieger - including "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going," "One Night Only" and "Listen" - and book and lyrics by Tony and Grammy Award winner Tom Eyen.
This DREAMGIRLS production has been created by first-class Broadway veterans, including well-known Broadway Director and Choreographer Bobby Longbottom (with additional choreography from "So You Think You Can Dance's" Shane Sparks), and Scenery, Costumes, and Lighting designed by the highly-decorated and multiple Tony Award winning team of Robin Wagner, William Ivey Long, and Ken Billington. The video design, which figures prominently in the story telling, was created by Howard Werner, who is also the video designer on SPIDERMAN on Broadway.
