Jake Gyllenhaal takes on Dreamgirls

Here at BritishTheatre.com we had a good laugh this morning when this great clip of Broadway leading man Jake Gyllenhaal doing his take on Effie White and the classic Broadway showstopper And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going from Dreamgirls.

If you haven’t already get down to see Dreamgirls at London’s Savoy Theatre or if you are a fan of Jake’s beg, borrow or steal a ticket to Sunday In The Park With George. UK fans take heart we’ve heard a whisper that Jake’s George may be UK bound! Join our mailing list to be kept informed. BOOK TICKETS FOR DREAMGIRLS IN LONDON https://vimeo.com/94958219
