*“Act II Opening” is a medley of Dreamgirls songs. In the original production, the medley consisted of “Dreamgirls,” “Move (You’re Steppin’ on My Heart),” “Love Love Me Baby,” “Family,” “Heavy,” and “Cadillac Car” performed by Deena Jones and the Dreams and the ensemble. For the 1983 first national tour, the medley was changed to feature “Dreamgirls” and a new song, “Step on Over.” For the 2009 national tour, a new song, “What Love Can Do,” was paired with “Step on Over” for the second act opening. For the 2016 West End revival, “Act II Opening” was modified again to include a full-length reprisal of “Love Love Me Baby.”

**“Listen” was originally written for the 2006 film adaptation of Dreamgirls. It was added to the 2009 revival and 2016 West End production.
