Castng news so far is that Nicole Racquel Dennis (Dear Evan Hansen, Waitress, Dreamgirls, and The Book of Mormon) will play Effie

Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin, Something Rotten!) will direct and choreograph the production with award winning designers Tim Hatley & Gregg Barnes creating the sets and costumes.

The piece tells the story of Eddie, Lorrell and Deena, a singing group from the '60s and is based on the true story of The Supremes.With music by Henry Krieger and book & lyrics by Tom Eyen and nspired by R&B music acts in 1960s America,  DREAMGIRLS charts the tumultuous journey of a young female singing trio, from Chicago, Illinois called 'The Dreams', as they learn the hard lesson that show business is as tough as it is fabulous and features the fabulous classic songs "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going," "I Am Changing" and "One Night Only."

The London show opened more than 30 years after the original Broadway production, which was directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett and starred Jennifer Holliday as 'Effie' which won six 1982 Tony Awards
