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. I’d eat my mother-in-law’s meatloaf to hear the Dreamgirls perform a mash of Dancing Queen by ABBA with Hell is for Children by Pat Benatar.

  2. “My Lovin’ (You’re never gonna get it)” by En Vogue – Attitude and everything!! Could see it now!

  3. This is the song on my mind rigt now, so if these lovely “Dreamgirls” would sing it, ahhhhhhh, it would be music to my ears.

  4. Oops, so excited, I forgot to put the name of the song….
    This is the song on my mind rigt now (COLOR OF MY LOVE by Celine Dion), so if these lovely “Dreamgirls” would sing it, ahhhhhhh, it would be music to my ears.

  5. The Prologue song from the movie Little Shop of Horrors. The campiness of it all, combined with the outfits, the dance moves and their harmony…it would be awesome! I’m telling you…check it out on Youtube, it’s perfect!

  6. Hanky Panky by Madonna

    I want to see the ‘moves’ that go with the lyrics “you can just spank me”

  7. It would be great if they would sing a classic Mariah Carey song, like Hero. With the musical/theater, it could be really touching.

  8. Perfect for one of the guys (there’s enough numbers for the ladies in this musical).

    Pumpin’ 4 the Man by Ween
    (yeah, it’s a little dirty but it could be cleaned up and you have to listen to the original version to get a taste…pushes my little daisies, I’ll tell you what)

    It’s a nine mile walk from the office to the pumps
    Sometimes you think you’re gonna drop
    In the end you’re filthy dirty, horny, and pissed off
    And before you can leave you gotta sweep the fuckin’ shop

    It’s a real real bitch to be workin’ for the man
    But shit, I do it well, so what the fuck
    I could probably wash dishes at some other fuckin’ dump
    But it’s all the same to me, bustin’ ass to make a buck

    So read ’em up and stick ’em
    Pump that fucker good
    Some woman down on Main Street needs a jump
    Get your fingers outta your ass
    And pump some faggot’s gas
    And think about how bad New Hope sucks

    And it’s a piss poor life when the ladies fire you up
    And then you check their oil and know you’re fucked
    ‘Cause no one wants a loser who works for 5 an hour
    Smells like gas, looks like shit, works in the rain and rude as hell

    Now I can fix a tire like Hurricane Melinda
    I know that I’m the best for what it’s worth
    So if I choose to help you don’t look like you expect it
    ‘Cause it’s a gift that God gave me at birth

    So read ’em up and stick ’em
    Pump that fucker good
    Some woman down on Main Street needs a jump
    Get your fingers outta your ass
    And pump some faggot’s gas
    And think about how bad New Hope sucks, woohoo!

    [chorus]

  9. “Banf of Gold” by Freda Payne. It makes so much sense if Jimmy’s wife were to come in and sing this.
