Tarell Alvin McCraney's latest acclaimed play tracks the coming-of-age of a group of talented young African-American prep-school singers whose choral prowess is woven seamlessly into the story. Pharus, the undisputed superstar of the choir, is searching for the courage to let his true self shine through, in this work by MacArthur Fellowship-winner McCraney (The Brother/Sister Plays), who's been called "without question, the hottest young playwright in America" (Chicago Tribune). The West Coast premiere reunites director Trip Cullman, star Jeremy Pope and several other cast members from its 2013 New York run. Learn More

What a TREAT!!The Cast voices were Outstanding! The entire audience enjoyed the wonderful music! Go see this Musical before it leaves!! We had great seats in the first row of the Mezzanine.
The Pantages Staff were friendly and professional. The ticket pick up from Will Call, though there was a line, it went quickly.

Turn up that dial … from the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, comes a hot new Broadway musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs, and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, Memphis_ is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves—filled with laughter, soaring emotion, and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll. Winner of four 2010 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, Memphis_ features a Tony®-winning book by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change_) and a Tony®-winning original score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan. Directing is Tony® nominee Christopher Ashley (_Xanadu) and choreography is by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).
