Asmeret Ghebremichael joins Dreamgirls

Published 23 March 2017

Sonia Friedman Productions is delighted to announce that Asmeret Ghebremichael has joined the company of Dreamgirls to perform the role of Lorrell Robinson. She began performances this week.

Ghebremichael is best known for her performances in The Book of Mormon (West End and Broadway), Legally Blonde, Elf The Musical, Spamalot and Wicked (Broadway). She also appeared in the US television production The Wiz Live!.

The critically acclaimed, hit UK premiere of Dreamgirls has been nominated for five Olivier Awards and stars American actress and singer Amber Riley as Effie White with Marisha Wallace and Karen Mav alternating the role of Effie, Liisi LaFontaine as Deena Jones and now Asmeret Ghebremichael as Lorrell Robinson making up the soulful singing trio ‘The Dreams’. Ghebremichael replaces Ibinabo Jack, who has had to withdraw from the production due to health reasons.

Dreamgirls transports you to a revolutionary time in American music history. Dreamgirls charts the tumultuous journey of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois called ‘The Dreams’, as they learn the hard lesson that show business is as tough as it is fabulous, and features the classic songs And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going, I Am Changing, Listen and One Night Only .

With Book and Lyrics by Tom Eyen and Music by Henry Krieger, the original Broadway production of Dreamgirls, Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett opened in 1981 and subsequently won six Tony Awards®. The original cast recording won two Grammy awards for Best Musical Album and Best Vocal Performance for Jennifer Holliday’s ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.’ In 2006 it was adapted into an Oscar winning motion picture starring Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx.

The highly anticipated Original London Cast Recording of the new, hit West End musical Dreamgirls, will be released on Sony Masterworks Broadway mid-April and is available to pre-order now via Amazon.
