Saturday: ‘Dreamgirls’

[IMG:L]Dreamgirls — 8/7c on HBO

Just in time for the pre-holidays–and almost a full year after hitting theaters!

But with Hairspray recently released on DVD and Sweeney Todd due shortly, what better time to revisit the musical?

Lest you’ve forgotten, Dreamgirls, last year’s biggest Oscars snub, made a star out of Jennifer Hudson and a goat out of Eddie Murphy (who did not leave the ceremony early because he lost Best Supporting Actor to Alan Arkin!).

Bill Condon’s entertaining Broadway adaptation premieres tonight, and with so much time having passed since you (forcibly?) saw it in theaters, you’re likely to find newfound respect for its performances.
