You’ve heard of New York. You’ve heard of Los Angeles. Now it’s time to hear Memphis. The musical, loosely based on the life and career of Memphis disc jockey Dewey Phillips, tunes you into the sounds of the first white DJ bringing “black music” to 1950’s America.
Memphis centers on a white disc jockey and black club singer who attempt to teach America that “rock ‘n’ roll is just black people’s blues sped up.” Through bold rock ‘n roll tunes, punchy dance moves, and an engaging narrative of fame and forbidden love, Memphis reminds us of our nation’s struggle for tolerance and begs us to rock against racism.
When Great Minds Think Alike
Memphis is the product of genius Broadway collaboration – book by Joe DiPietro (the brilliant mind behind I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change), original score by David Bryan (Bon Jovi’s founding member), direction by Tony-nominated Christopher Ashley (Xanadu), and choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).
The Critics Sing Praise
Memphis was nominated for eight Tony Awards and won four: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Orchestration. Reviews were favorable as well:
“An exuberant musical with classic values: catchy songs, heaping spoonfuls of inspirational moments, and gifted performers at the top of their game." – The New York Post
“The exhilarating new musical shaking the Shubert Theatre is the very essence of what a Broadway musical should be." – The Associated Press
