Broadway Stars Turn Gender Roles on 'Dreamgirls' Classic - Watch the Epic Video!

If you have ever wanted to see the gender roles in the musical Dreamgirls flipped, you are in luck thanks to MCC Theatre’s Miscast Gala.

The annual gala allows Broadway performers to sing songs for roles they would never be able to play on stage due to age, gender, and/or race restrictions.

Two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz led an epic ensemble to perform the Dreamgirls songs “It’s All Over” and “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” at this year’s event. He played Effie while Brian d’Arcy James played Deena and Brandon Victor Dixon took on Lorrell.

Stephanie J. Block played Effie’s love interest Curtis, Kelli O’Hara took on Effie’s brother C.C., Jordan Fisher played the new Dream Michelle, and Jenn Colella played Jimmy Early.

Jennifer Holliday, who originated the role of Effie on Broadway, was sitting on stage during the performance and Norbert bowed at her feet after he was finished singing!
