Memphis: The Musical
May 19 @ 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until May 22, 2022
From the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, comes the Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical to the Moonlight Theater that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs, and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love.
Originally premiered at the La Jolla Playhouse, this new Broadway musical is 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 and two 2015 Olivier Awards, MEMPHIS features a Tony-winning book by Joe DiPietro and a Tony-winning original score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
