Listen, taken from the Original London Cast Recording of hit West End musical Dreamgirls, and performed by Amber Riley (Olivier Award-winner for Best Actress in a Musical) and Liisi LaFontaine, has today been released as a single available for download.
Following celebrated wins at the 2017 Olivier Awards with Mastercard, the highly anticipated cast recording will be released by Sony Masterworks Broadway on Friday 12 May 2017 via Amazon, iTunes, and all usual channels.
Featuring iconic songs from the musical including, ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’ ‘Listen’, ‘I Am Changing’, ‘One Night Only’, ‘Steppin To The Bad Side’, ‘Move’ and title track ‘Dreamgirls’, the double-album was recorded live over four performances at the Savoy Theatre in February 2017.
With no additional studio re-recordings or musical overdubs it captures the on-stage exhilaration of the Dreamgirls original London cast, 14 piece band and the audience thus retaining the live in-theatre integrity of these special performances.
The long-awaited UK premiere of Dreamgirls opened in December 2016 at the Savoy Theatre to widespread critical acclaim, 35 years after originally opening on Broadway, transporting audiences to a revolutionary time in American music history.
