MEMPHIS
February 20 - March 4, 2018

Music & Lyrics by David Bryan
Lyrics & Book by Joe DiPietro
Based on a Concept by George W. George

WINNER of FOUR 2010 TONY AWARDS® including BEST MUSICAL!

From the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, comes the Tony Award winning 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 ALL SHOOK UP) and a Tony®-winning original score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.

MEMPHIS was highly celebrated during its successful Broadway run, on National Tour, and helped pioneer the industry as one of the first shows available for streaming on BroadwayHD.com. While highly entertaining and evocative (with its R&B based score, evoking popular songs from the 50's and 60's), it also has a strong political message that comes from its era, but certainly speaks strongly to contemporary audiences in resonant and relevant
ways, which give it perhaps an even greater appeal than when originally produced.

“MEMPHIS” is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW), 1180 Avenue of the Americas, Suite 640, New York, NY 10036 (886)378-9758 www.theatricalrights.com.
