Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and inspired by the underground clubs of the 1950s, Memphis follows the forbidden love of a white DJ who falls for everything he shouldn’t: R&B music and a magnetic black singer chasing stardom. Our lovers embark with courage on a dangerous affair but are challenged by family, personal ambition and a non-accepting world. This roof-raising musical, about a revolution that erupts when a vision meets a voice, features a mix of electrifying music, high-octane dancing and soulful, soaring emotion.
