Dreamgirls comes to Downtown Cabaret in Bridgeport

The Downtown Cabaret Theatre is a direct descendent of the Sacred Heart University Cabaret. After several successful seasons in an academic setting, the entire company, under the artistic direction of Claude McNeal, moved to its present home in 1975. Today, this venue has hosted well over one million adults and children that have enjoyed musical productions in the unique “Bring Your Own Picnic” cabaret atmosphere.


“Dreamgirls” will kick off the 2014 Season. It will be presented by the Bridgeport Theatre Company (Downtown Cabaret’s Community Theatre Project) on January 16-18, 24-26 and January 30 – February 1. Shows begin at 8 p.m. on Thursday (Jan. 30 at 7:30), Friday at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 26 at 5 p.m.

Dreamgirls is a smash Broadway musical and an award-winning motion picture that captures the spirit and hope of Motown when a girl group from Chicago makes it big. In a business controlled by men, the female trio fights for recognition, fellowship and love as superstardom challenges their musical and cultural identity. A rich, glowing spectacle about the price of show-biz success, Dreamgirls sizzles with sparkling dance and R&B soul.

Based on the story of Diana Ross’ rise to fame, the show has made stars of Tony Award-winner Jennifer Holliday and Academy Award-winner Jennifer Hudson. Featuring such hit songs as “Dreamgirls,” “And I am Telling You I’m Not Going” and “One Night Only”.
