#137 | “Dreamgirls” Will Never Leave You (feat. @nicju & @R2ThaEdgy of What’s the Tea)

Premiering in 1981, “Dreamgirls,” the musical, helped launch the careers of household names Loretta Devine, Sheryl Lee Ralph and the infamous Jennifer Holliday. Twenty-five years later, “Dreamgirls” the movie, endeared “America Idol” star Jennifer Hudson into the hearts of the world and made her a rival of Beyoncé in front of and behind the screen. In this episode, we celebrate the stage play and film with our special guests, NicJu and Reg from the What’s The Tea podcast. Learn more about the music, the stars and history of this story loosely based on the rise of Motown and the Supremes.
