ABOUT THE SHOW:
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.

“Breathe easy, parents! Other than a scene of violence involving a beating, MEMPHIS is good, clean fun that sends theatergoers out on a positive message. Teenagers especially will appreciate the radio-ready songs by Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan and Joe DiPietro. Most likely, the whole family will rock and roll at MEMPHIS.” — Broadway.com
