Walk the Red Carpet & Ride a Limo to Opening Night of “Dreamgirls” at the Ahmanson!


Our Pals at Center Theatre Group and Goldstar (home of the illustrious LA baking bloggeratrix Happy Go Marni) have hooked us up with the ultimate giveaway for anyone who likes (a) music (b) musicals (c) anything that Beyonce & Jennifer Hudson ever appeared in. Ha!

But seriously, this is the kind of cool deal Goldstar has the sense to put together (full disclosure: I used to work at Goldstar, which gave me not only an acute appreciation of the hard work that goes into producing & delivering theatre, but honed that appreciation beyond that which high school drama club had imparted). They’re good people over there–I know. They also have a sense of humor, which is why to win this contest–and get the pair of opening night tix, the walk down the red carpet and the limo ride to the venue–you need to leave a comment answering this:

What song do you WISH the Dreamgirls sang?

It could be anything from “Gay Bar” by the Electric Six to “Ring Of Fire” by Johnny Cash or the Macarena.

Go crazy! And get your fancy pants ready, ’cause you’ll be sashaying down that red carpet in no time! Deadline for comments is Friday Feb. 26. The event itself is March 2, so go ask for that afternoon off right now.

  1. YOU’RE THE ONE THAT I WANT FROM GREASE. THOSE GIRLS WOULD GIVE IT A WHOLE GREAT NEW TWIST. OO.OO.OO…HONEY!

  2. I think they should sing “It’s Raining Men”, you know they’ll knock it out of the theatre!!!!!

  3. Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

    It’s peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time

    (Chorus:)
    Where he at 4x
    There he go 4x
    Peanut butter jelly 4x
    Do the peanut butter jelly, peanut butter jelly,
    Peanut butter jelly with a baseball bat 2x

  4. “Dream On” by Aerosmith. I love when R&B singers take on rock ‘n roll and this blues inspired rocker would sound amazing sung by the belting ladies of “Dreamgirls”.

    For instance, imagine Deena singing these lines in Act 2:

    Every time that I look in the mirror
    All these lines on my face getting clearer
    The past is gone
    It went by, like dusk to dawn
    Isn’t that the way
    Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

    Or Effie singing this in Act 2:

    Yeah, I know nobody knows
    Where it comes and where it goes
    I know it’s everybody’s sin
    You got to lose to know how to win

    Or all the Dreams ripping these lyrics up:

    Sing with me, sing for the year
    Sing for the laugh, sing for the tear
    Sing with me, if it’s just for today
    Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

    (Can you tell I am a total music theatre glee-k who knows all the lyrics to this and other musicals! lol)

  5. Sad But True – Metallica
    “I’m your dream, make you real……I’m your dream, mind astray……
    I’m your dream, I’m your eyes, I’m your pain……
    You know it’s sad but true.”

  6. “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Diana Ross and the Supremes since this is a story semi-based on them.
