Memphis is now in performances at the John W. Engeman Theater at Northport.

Inspired by true events from the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, the Tony-winning musical follows the fame and forbidden love of a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break. The production features a Tony-winning book by Joe DiPietro and a Tony-winning score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
