GLEE’s Amber Riley to Lead DREAMGIRLS as ‘Effie’ in the West End This Winter
Big news in the DREAMGIRLS world tonight! The Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye just revealed the news that GLEE and THE WIZ LIVE! star Amber Riley will play ‘Effie’ when the musical makes its UK debut at London’s Savoy Theatre this winter. Tickets will go on sale this spring.
Beginning previews in November, Riley, who performed the signature tunes “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” and “I Am Changing” from DREAMGIRLS while playing ‘Mercedes Jones’ on FOX’s GLEE, will make her West End debut. The actress also recently knocked viewers’ socks off with her portrayal of ‘Addapearle’ in NBC’s THE WIZ LIVE!
