Show #7: Dreamgirls An audience of Fro's and Mo's having the time of their lives! I've never seen an audience jump into a standing ovation mid show as quickly as I did when Amber Riley finished singing "And I Am Telling You.....". Give that girl every award going! Her voice is out of this world! Overall the cast were ridiculously talented including the understudy we had on for Deena Jones. I had chills from start to finish! Casey Nicholaw knows his target market and delivered one of the campest nights at the theatre I've ever experienced. With more sequins, crystals, wigs, flashing lights and costume changes than you you can imagine. The audience ate it up! There were constant squeals of delight from all the Mo's populating the audience. My only critique, which I run the risk of offending some people, is one I have with several shows here in London...the laziness of the ensemble! With a show as high energy as this it really stands out when ensemble members are marking and not fully committing. Sadly Dreamgirls wasn't the only West End musical I've seen this trip (or on previous trips for that matter) to suffer from this problem. #Dreamgirls #dreamgirlsldn

"Ain't it funny that you managed To just wash away Even pictures that you're not in Have started to fade I tried to play my favorite songs But I can't sing along The words don't feel the same You've taken all the best things from me And thrown them away" #AmberRiley #dreamgirlsldn @msamberpriley #Dreamgirls #Colorblind #glee
This show...THIS SHOW! Never have I seen a standing ovation before an interval and even before a song is finished. That's how powerful and amazing @msamberpriley is. Such an amazing show & even better when you get tickets through @todaytix - amazing app! @dreamgirlsldn #dreamgirls #dreamgirlsldn #savoytheatre #musical #westend #todaytix #thanksmamaru
Words can't describe how happy I am to watch her and surprisingly got a picture with her too! The first time I knew Amber Riley would play Effie White in Dreamgirls London, I told myself that this musical is a must to watch. I mean, I've been growing up with her on screen as Mercedes Jones for years, and tonight I finally watched her live! I just couldn't take my eyes off of her on stage. Her voice is amazingly powerful. She's crazily talented. Btw, the show is also super entertaining with this new production. It's highly recommended. Thanks to Amber and the whole Dreamgirls team to make tonight happen! It really is a dream comes true.
