In PDX // PCS “Dreamgirls”

Happy Friday everyone! TGIF, amiright?
Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of going to see “Dreamgirls” at Portland Center Stage

I saw the movie version of this musical back when the Beyonce one came out, but it had been quite awhile so I completely forgot just how great all the music for this show is. I love the Motown vibe of the songs, and PCS did a great job with all the fun costumes and colorful sets for their version.

I had the opportunity to attend a performance of Dreamgirls thanks so an event Rachel put together with PCS for some local bloggers, and I was mainly just looking forward to a fun night out with my friends as I figure I need to take advantage of doing things like this before the baby gets here! 

However, I ended up being really blown away by the talented cast for this show! Seriously, every single person had such an incredible voice and I was extremely impressed by the casting!

And I’m happy to share that right now, PCS is offering a special discount to Dreamgirls if you use the promo code ‘PDXBLOGS’ when you purchase tickets online! This code gets you  $20 tickets for Tuesday night performances as well as Halloween night, and then $5 off other nights, which is an awesome deal, especially given the talent of the cast!  If you live here in Portland, I’d highly suggest checking it out before it closes. The show runs until Nov. 2nd at the Gerding Theater at the Armory and it’s such a great choice for a date night or girls’ night out. (Plus the location of the theater in the Pearl District makes it ideal for making an evening of it and getting dinner or drinks too!) 

Although I did receive a complimentary ticket to attend Dreamgirls, I was not required to write a post about it. However, I wanted to do so because I genuinely enjoyed the show so much, and so all thoughts/opinions expressed are 100% my own 🙂 If you live in PDX, go check this show out!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
