Dreamgirls by Henry Krieger and Tom Eyen

During the late 1960's and early 70's, three friends from Detroit, Effie White, Deena Jones, and Lorrell Robinson, form an R&B act called ‘The Dreamettes’. The women compete in a local talent contest where they are discovered by Curtis Taylor, Jr. , a ruthless talent manager who offers them a job to be the backup singers for headliner James ‘Thunder’ Early. They take the job and soon find out that Curtis has now taken over their lives. Their first professional show is at the Apollo Theatre in New York City. Effie's brother, C.C. White is a talented songwriter who begins to write songs for Early and the group. Using the talents of C.C., Curtis decides to change their style from R&B music to pop music and to go out on their own. Curtis also moves the beautiful Deena to the lead singer spot and moves Effie to backup. Now called ‘The Dreams,’ they become a worldwide success with Deena as the lead singer. However, in time the three women realize that life is not all about fame and fortune. The moral of this story is that family and friends are the most important aspect of life.
