In 1981, a musical by Henry Krieger and Tom Eyen called Dreamgirls hit Broadway.  Based on the 1960's R&B acts trying and somewhat succeeding to make it in show business, it was nominated for 13 Tony awards, ultimately winning 6 plus two Grammys as well.  In 2006, Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast – 2017 live-acti...
