Inspired by the underground dance clubs of 1950’s Memphis, Tennessee, comes the Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs, and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Catch Memphis at Gateway Playhouse through July 21.
Based on 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 original score with music by Bon Jovi founding member, David Bryan.
