“DREAMGIRLS” STARRING AMERICAN IDOL FINALIST
LA KISHA JONES AT MIRAMAR CULTURAL CENTER
American Idol finalist La Kisha Jones in a concert- style presentation of Broadway’s Tony Award winning smash hit musical coming to the Miramar Cultural Center July 22, at 8 p.m. and July 23, 2017 at 2 p.m.
This Tony, Oscar and Grammy Award-winning classic follows the rise and fall of a 1960's girl’s singing group and the triumphs and tribulations that come with fame and fortune.
Set in the Motown era that brought us such electrifying voices as Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross, Dreamgirls are dynamite on the stage with legendary songs including such hits as “One Night Only,” “I Am Changing,” and the act-one powerhouse ballad, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.”
Dreamgirls originated in Detroit, in the mid-1960's known as The Dreamettes, a black girl singing group who were struggling to make a name for themselves. They are approached by a sneezy car salesman who wants to manage them in order to break into the music business.
The girls reluctantly accept the offer knowing what his terms are. They have to decide what to do and to whom their loyalties lie as they try to make it to the top. Their views keep changing over a period of time with the onset of the 70's and the change of mainstream musical tastes to disco.
Based on the 1981 Broadway musical, Dreamgirls is a story of greed, tough hate and romance. Performances take place on July 22, at 8 p.m. and July 23, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $ 35, $45 and $65 at the box office located at the Miramar Cultural Center, 2200 Civic Center Place, Miramar. For all other information call 954-602-4500 or visit online at miramarculturalcenter.org.
