Sonia Friedman Productions is delighted to announce that the highly anticipated Original London Cast Recording of the new, hit West End musical Dreamgirls, will be released on Sony Classical on 14 April and is available to pre-order today via Amazon.
Recorded live last month at the Savoy Theatre, the double-album captures the on-stage exhilaration of the original London cast of Dreamgirls, the 14-piece band and the audience, and features iconic songs from the musical including ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’, ‘I Am Changing’, ‘Listen’ and ‘One Night Only’.
