Due to be released on 12 May, the recording features Amber Riley who won the WhatsOnStage and Olivier Awards for Best Actress in a Musical, as Effie.

The cast on the recording also includes Liisi LaFontaine, Ibinabo Jack, Joe Aaron Reid and Tyrone Huntley.

The musical, which was adapted into the 2006 film starring Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson and Jamie Foxx, charts the story of a female singing trio from Chicago called The Dreams in the '60s and '70s.

Dreamgirls is booking at the Savoy until October 2017.
