It’s hard not to drift into another world during Dreamgirls. The 2006 movie adaptation of the Broadway play tells the fictionalized story of the birth of Motown Records and its star act, The Supremes. The ladies paved the way for pop music as we know it, and their transformation from sweet soul backup singers to megawatt stars is reason enough for a standing ovation. A round of applause, please, for everyone’s favorite girl group. — Amy Merrick

The sixties and seventies were a good time for onstage glamour, with its sequins, fringe, shiny brass and disco balls. While the reality of stardom was far less glowing in most cases, the surface gleamed, and the surface is what we’re stealing here. So start up the record player, pull out some sparkles and sing away.
