The weekend is coming and if you are looking for a great experience on the town, you should get your tickets now. My husband and I had an awesome date night a few days ago. We had the chance to see the amazing performance of The Dream Girls at Portland Center Stage. The cast was exceptional and the story was amazing. Well, anything about Motown in my opinion is just juicy!
So here’s the skinny about the show.
The Dream Girls is the Winner of 6 Tony Awards, this groundbreaking musical, loosely based on the career of The Supremes, takes you to a revolutionary time in American music history when rhythm and blues blended with other styles of popular music and created a new American sound—Motown. In the ‘60s, three friends form The Dreamettes and get their big break at an amateur competition, and begin singing backup vocals for a major star. As their own fame grows, however, things begin to spin out of control when their agent’s business maneuvers trump their friendship, and fortune and success take them down a path of heartbreak and turmoil. Over two decades The Dreams, as they become known, learn hard lessons about love, trust and the changing tastes of the American public.
There are still 5 performances remaining. You don’t want to miss this show! And let me give my personal props to Miss Nattalyee Randall who played the character of the vivacious, outspoken and lovely Effie White. I enjoyed her character tremendously. She brought soul, laughter and tears to this role and in my opinion totally made the show come alive.
Well done to the entire cast.
