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).
Memphis runs 2 hours 32 minutes, including a 20-minute intermission.
