Never before has a love story been told with as much dancing, singing and pure rock ‘n’ roll as in Memphis. Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Memphis tells the story of a white DJ hungry for new music and a black singer ready for her big break. Set in ’50s dance clubs, sparks fly when these two collide and fall in love, kindling a collaboration as dangerous as it is powerful. With a Tony-winning book by the writer of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change and a Tony-winning score by David Bryan, founding member of Bon Jovi, the show is a rockin’ and rollin’ good time.
