This week’s Between Shows is the new movie musical SPARKLE starring Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston, in her final film performance. A remake of the 1976 Irene Cara film of the same name, SPARKLE tells the story of three sisters who form a girl group in the 1960s and learn that fame can take a toll on a family.
Not only does SPARKLE remind us of the hit Broadway musical Dreamgirls; it also has some theatre cred in the form of leading lady Jordin Sparks, who starred in In the Heights in 2010. And who doesn’t love the late, great Whitney Houston?
Watch the trailer for SPARKLE below, then see it when it opens this Friday, August 17th!
