Dreamgirls, with a book and lyrics by Tom Eyen and music by Henry Krieger, was previously produced at The Muny in 2012. 

Krieger and Eyen's Dreamgirls won six Tony Awards in its 1982 Broadway premiere. The late Michael Bennett took home the award for Best Choreography alongside collaborator Michael Peters. Jennifer Holliday memorably created the role of Effie to Tony-winning effect, stopping the show nightly with "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going." The 2006 film, adapted and directed by Bill Condon, earned Jennifer Hudson the Golden Globe and Academy Awards for her portrayal of Effie.

The Telsey Office is the casting partner of The Muny.

The Muny artistic staff includes Artistic Director and Executive Producer Mike Isaacson and Associate Artistic Director Michael Baxter. The production manager is Tracy Utzmyers, and the music supervisor is Michael Horsley.

The 2024 summer season at The Muny includes Les Misérables (June 17-23), Dreamgirls (June 27-July 3), Disney’s The Little Mermaid (July 8-16), Fiddler on the Roof (July 19-25), Waitress (July 30-August 5), In the Heights (August 9-15), and Anything Goes (August 19-25).
