Music Break [...with James Thunder Earlie and The Dreamettes]

I probably always had the information in the back of my head, but it's only last week that I really ruminated on the fact that Audra McDonald was part of a Concert Performance of Dreamgirls back in the day. Sure Dreamgirls wasn't the all-round smash hit that Condon hoped it'd be but it was good enough. True, the second act was clunky - but the second act is clunky on film, on stage even the songs are less interesting. But the songs in the first act are kind of golden - especially this one. Fake Your Way to the Top, times two.
