In the early Eighties, “Dreamgirls” became one of the most successful Broadway shows in history. In 1982, the show was nominated for thirteen Tony Awards and won five. The huge popularity of the show saw the recording of an album that included material sung by its original performers. Geffen Records released the original cast album of “Dreamgirls” in the winter of 1982.
