I saw the Dreamgirls movie again. I really urge you to see it. It is so great to see musicals again on the big screen. Jennifer Hudson is excellent as Effie White. It makes no sense to compare her to Jennifer Holliday, the original Broadway Effie. Both are special in their own way. However, Holliday’s performance was one of the greatest to ever hit the Broadway stage. I feel so privilaged to have witnessed it live! She literally “stopped the show!” Here is a clip from the 1992 Tony Awards. While not the same as live…it is pretty damned good!
