"Dreamgirls," which recently received eight Academy Award nominations excluding one for Best Picture, may be headed back to the Broadway stage. Dreamgirls composer Henry Krieger told the New York Post that John Breglio — the lawyer who oversees the estate of original Dreamgirls director-choreographer Michael Bennett — will hold a meeting next month to discuss a Broadway revival of the 1981 musical. "We’re going to figure out how to do this," Krieger told the New York daily. "We think it’s time. All is good." In a written statement issued Jan. 25 Breglio said, "There’s a lot of interest in bringing Dreamgirls back to Broadway. The owners of the musical decided a year ago not to make any decision about a Broadway revival until after the film was released. As for my producing a new production of Dreamgirls, for the time being my focus is on A Chorus Line. Whether or not I want to jump into another project this soon is something I need more time to consider."
