Memphis was full of energy, great dancing and amazing voices.
The singing and dancing is almost non-stop, and the singing talent is incredible.

Such a treat to see a well-crafted original musical! The cast members are all triple threats - great singing, dancing, and acting. The story line is quite engaging and reminds us of how much has changed over the past six decades.

The cast was fabulous, great voices, high energy, great dancing, set was perfect. We were entertained from opening number to the final song. A group of friends went at the last minute and we were completely satisfied.

This was a great performance recounting the origins of rock and role in the

Memphis was a wonderful show--easy to see why it won so many Tony's. The female lead (who played Felicia) was exceptionally talented. Great music, great dancing and a very compelling story. Also, the Kennedy Center is a superb venue. Quick...continued
