Dreamgirls and Motown: The Musical

Each of these Broadway hits brought back an era of music. Dreamgirls, which ran from 1981 to 1985, fictionalizes the birth of R&B through the rags-to-riches story of girl group The Dreams, while Motown: The Musical, which bowed in 2013, pays homage to Berry Gordy's legacy and was based on his 1994 autobiography.
