Book and Lyrics by JOE DIPIETRO, Music and Lyrics by DAVID BRYAN


Based on a Concept by George W. George


Hockadoo! Huey Calhoun, a local white boy with a passion for music desperately wants to bring Soul, R&B and Rock & Roll music to southern white audiences during the early 1950s. Felicia Farrell is an aspiring Black singer who performs under the watchful eye of her overprotective brother in his underground night club. When Huey and Felicia connect over their shared love of music, dreams and ambitions they are faced with objections from not only their families but the world around them. Can music transcend race? Can love win over hate? Memphis is the winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical

Performances: Tuesday through Saturday (7:30 p.m.) and Sunday matinees (2 p.m.)

Running time: 2 hours and 45 minutes with one intermission (approx.)
