Memphis, the WINNER OF THE 2010 TONY AWARD® FOR BEST MUSICAL – is a Broadway musical with heart, soul and energy to burn. She’s a black singer whose career is on the rise, but who can’t break out of segregated clubs of 1950’s Memphis Tennessee. He’s a white radio DJ whose love of music transcends race lines and airwaves. When the two collaborate, her soulful music reaches radio audiences everywhere, and the Golden Era of early rock ‘n’ roll takes flight. But as things start to heat up, whether the world is really ready for their music – or their love – is put to the test.
A thrilling theatrical event that combines Broadway splendor with the roots of rock, Memphis features a Tony Award® winning story by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change), a Tony Award® winning original score by David Bryan (Bon Jovi) and Joe DiPietro, direction by Christopher Ashley (Xanadu) and choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).
Be ready to experience all the exuberance and the emotion…the beauty and the controversy…of a wondrous, defining time in our history. You’re tuning in to Memphis.
