So we thought it’d be fun to do a competition. There have been so many fabulous ladies who have played Effie. And probably the most famous song from the show is one of Effie’s. “And I am Telling You” Check out the clips below and then tell us…who’s version is your favorite. Oh and then go buy your tickets to check out our Effie, Ms. Shawnee Louise Coleman-Lining, kill this song this weekend!!!
First up…the originial.
Mercedes (Amber Riley) from Glee (Sorry for the terrible video quality)
So who’s your favorite? Who else should be included on this list?!? Any suggestions?
Dominion Stage Presents DREAMGIRLS
Spanning from the fabulous sixties through the arrival of disco, DREAMGIRLS follows the behind-the-scenes reality of the entertainment industry and the “business” part of show business. A musical extravaganza that follows the creation and career of a female singing trio, the show provides the highs and lows that come with fame, greed and misguided loyalties, and the need for defining what is important in following one’s dreams.
Directed by Anya Randall Nebel
Music Direction by John-Michael d’Haviland
Choreographed by Rikki Howie
Stage Managed by Phil Natalini
Produced for Dominion Stage by David M. Moretti
