Dreamgirls: Original Broadway Cast Album is the cast album for the original Broadway production of the musical Dreamgirls, which debuted at the Imperial Theatre on December 20, 1981. The album was issued by David Geffen, a co-financier of the musical and later producer of its 2006 film adaptation, on his Geffen Records label during the winter of 1982.
The cast recording features Amber Riley as Effie White, Liisi LaFontaine as Deena Jones and Ibinabo Jack as Lorrell Robinson - making up the soulful singing trio 'The Dreams'; JoeAaron Reid as Curtis Taylor Jr, Adam J. Bernard as Jimmy Early, Tyrone Huntley as . White, Nicholas Bailey as Marty and Lily Frazer as Michelle Morris. Terrific, live recording with an excellent cast. Amber Riley, while not quite as amazing as Holliday or Hudson, is pretty damn good and makes some really smart choices vocally. Great to have a nearly-complete recording.
