Memphis shaked, rattled and rolled its way into The Toronto Centre for the Arts Wednesday night, and boasted a star studded opening night audience to celebrate! Hometown hero Sergio Trujillo was on hand, as well as many of the show's NYC producers, Toronto DJs from various radio stations and the Tony Award (from when the show won Best Musical in 2010). 

The touring production stars original Broadway cast members Bryan Fenkart and Felicia Boswell as the inter-racial lovers who bond over their love of the rock and roll music playing in the then underground club scene in Memphis, Tennessee.  Both shine in their respective roles, bringing heart, warmth, passion and incredible vocals to their characters.  The supporting cast is uniformly strong and the whole production comes together in a tight, clean and energetic burst of joy that the audience clearly loved.

BWW is thrilled to bring its readers these exclusive photos of the opening night show, as well as Dancap President Aubrey Dan and Sergio Trujillo with The Tony Award at the opening night party.

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
