Despite being a lover of musicals, Dreamgirls was a film that passed me by. All the music I’d heard from it wasn’t really my cup of tea (apart from One Night Only – that song is fab), and even seeing Beyonce absolutely smash Listen when she performed on the x factor all those years back didn’t sway me. However, I was a huge Glee fan back in the day so for £23 I had to see Amber Riley perform and see what all the fuss was about surrounding Dreamgirls.
When I saw that An American In Paris had been awarded a record breaking 28 5 star reviews upon its opening, I knew I had to find out what all the fuss was about. As I said in my previous review, I am definitely not well versed in the world of theatre enough to give starred ratings so I won’t be. But I will be telling you what I thought of the show.
