MEMPHIS National Tour to Play Saenger Theatre, 3/11-16

MEMPHIS, the 2010 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical, opens at the Saenger Theatre March 11 - 16, for a limited engagement!

Critically acclaimed MEMPHIS won four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score (David Bryan and Joe DiPietro); four Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Music (David Bryan) and four Outer Critic Circle Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Score (David Bryan & Joe DiPietro) and Outstanding Choreography (Sergio Trujillo).

MEMPHIS takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 50's, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun fell in love with everything he shouldn't: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer. MEMPHIS is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves -- filled with laughter, vibrant choreography and roof-raising rock 'n' roll.

Adam Arian will re-create the original direction by Tony nominee Christopher Ashley (Xanadu), Jermaine Rembert will re-create the original choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).

The show features a Tony winning score with music by Bon Jovi's founding member and keyboardist David Bryan and lyrics by Bryan and Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change), who also pens the musical's book. Bryan and DiPietro also collaborated on the award-winning off-Broadway hit, The Toxic Avenger. MEMPHIS is based on a concept by the late George W. George (producer of the Tony nominated Bedroom Farce and the film My Dinner with Andre).

Scenic Design for MEMPHIS is by Tony Award winner David Gallo (The Drowsy Chaperone, Reasons to Be Pretty), Costume Design is by Tony nominee Paul Tazewell (In the Heights), Lighting Design is by Tony Award winner Howell Binkley (Jersey Boys) and Sound Design is by Shannon Slaton.
