WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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 , which played pre-Broadway at the La Jolla Playhouse, 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). Get ready to experience Broadway's most exciting new destination -- what the AP calls 'The very essence of what a Broadway musical should be.'
