Based loosely upon the career of the Supremes, the current musical theater production of Dreamgirls (September 20 - November 2) at Portland Center Stage is nothing short of fabulous. "It's got soul!" as one of the characters, Jimmy Early, would say. The show follows the story of three friends, The Dreamettes, as they fight to make it big during a momentous time in American music history. And, as they say, there's no business like show business.
I've loved every show I've seen at Portland Center Stage main stage and Dreamgirls was no exception. The singing and the costumes are stellar and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Portland Center Stage graciously provided two tickets and so my best friend and I made a girls night out of it. We had a blast. Dreamgirls is fun, it's sassy and you'll be singing the whole way home. If you're interested in attending, Portland Center Stage is now offering a deal for $20 tickets on Tuesday nights and Halloween, and $5 off each ticket on any other performance with the promo code PDXBLOGS when tickets are purchased through Portland Center Stage online.
**Thank you Portland Center Stage for graciously providing a blogger ticket to the show. Disclaimer: No post was required for attending and as always, all thoughts are my own. It's a great show, go see it!
