Dreamgirls heading for West End?

According to the Daily Mail, producer Sonia Friedman has the rights for a  full West End production of the musical Dreamgirls  with  Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon and Aladdin) in talks to direct.

The London show will open more than 30 yers  after the original Broadway production, which  starred Jennifer Holliday as 'Effie' and  won six  Tony Awardsfor Best Book  Best Actor  Best Actress  Best Featured Actor , Best Lighting Design , and Best Choreography. The 2006 film adaptation featured Beyonce, Eddie Murphy  and Oscar winning Jennifer Hudson as Effie White who sings the fabulous powerful  number "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going.  Would be great if this happens!
