3.0 out of 5 stars Just "Eh" 3 April 2007
By Paul Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was originally supposed to be released back in December of 2006, and finally shipped at the beginning of April. Largely a photo essay book, it's a mild disappointment after that wait.

I was expecting something more in depth along the lines of the book that accompanied the film version of "Chicago" a couple of years ago (i.e., full script/libretto; expanded historical information on both the Broadway production and the making of the movie; interviews with original cast members and movie cast members; insights on film-making choices, etc.).

It does have a nice section on some of the design choices; but again, not a lot of text to accompany and enrich it.

The photos are nice and the paper stock they used has a great sheen to it, but there aren't too many photos here that could not be found in trade magazine ads or the Collector's Program. This is ultimately for die-hard fans of the movie 'Dreamgirls' that just can't get enough. I imagine casual admirers would look at this book once and probably not feel a need to open it again after the movie comes out on DVD in a few weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A catalog of film highlights perfect for any contemporary film library. 17 Jun. 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Any who have seen the production DREAMGIRLS, which is still popular a quarter century after its first Broadway production, will find the DREAMGIRLS photo book perfect for capturing the magic of the recent popular film. Photography by David James brought the Dreamgirls sensation to life and here over 200 color stills and concept paintings blend with archival photos to make for a catalog of film highlights perfect for any contemporary film library.
