The Apollo Theater hosted a press conference yesterday morning, with Dionne Warwick, Melvin Van Peebles and Savion Glover around to announce the venue’s 75th anniversary season. Among the highlights were a Dreamgirls revival that kick-starts on November 6 and an African American culture festival curated by soprano Jessye Norman ("Honor!," which will be co-presented by Carnegie Hall).
"We had an open call here at Thanksgiving and at 4:30 in the morning we had nearly 700 women lined up along 125th Street," Dreamgirls producer John Breglio said, "Hoping for the chance to be in this iconic musical."
