We were invited by writer-director Bill Condon to a special preview screening of DreamGirls at Paramount Studios. Condon has had a diverse career in show biz, ranging from the Oscar winning Gods and Monsters, which he wrote and directed, to the horror thriller Candyman, on which he collaborated with Clive Barker. His musical adaptations include Chicago, for which he was nominated for both a Golden Globe and an Oscar for Best Screenplay. We think he had better buy a new tuxedo for this year's awards!
