GOSSIP: Sonia Friedman bringing Dreamgirls to the West End?

According to Baz Bamigboye, producer Sonia Friedman (Shakespeare In Love / The Book of Mormon) is in talks with Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon / Aladdin) about directing the West End premiere of Dreamgirls (hooray!).

Friedman has apparently secured the rights to put on a full West End production. Bamigboye suggests the musical could open in the West End in 2016 or 2017, but stresses it is still very early days. Dreamgirls opened on Broadway in 1981 and was later adapted into a hugely successful film starring Jennifer Hudson (pictured above); however, the musical has never made it to the West End.

Please remember absolutely nothing is yet confirmed
