from DREAMGIRLS (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST ALBUM)
Music by Henry Krieger Lyrics by Tom Eyen
Dreamgirls was one of the top musicals on Broadway in the eighties. Its memorable music was composed by Henry Krieger while the lyrics and book were written by the late Tom Eyen (1940-1991). The show debuted in December 1981 and went on to become a smash hit. Dreamgirls gained thirteen Tony Awards nominations with six wins. Dreamgirls was also the springboard for Jennifer Holliday’s career. Holliday’s performance of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” became the musical’s show-stopper and a much-loved evergreen.
