Presented by NCM Fathom and Broadway Worldwide, MEMPHIS was captured live in performance at Broadway's renowned Shubert Theatre in New York City, and will be broadcast to more than 530 movie theaters nationwide through NCM's exclusive Digital Broadcast Network. Broadway Worldwide's production team is led by founder and executive producer Bruce Brandwen, Emmy Award®-winning director Don Roy King (Saturday Night Live, CBS' The Early Show, Survivor) and Grammy® and Emmy Award®-winning sound producer Matt Kaplowitz (Ghandi, PBS' To Bear Witness). Check out photos from the New York screening below!

MEMPHIS takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 50's, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun (Chad Kimball) fell in love with everything he shouldn't: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer (Montego Glover). MEMPHIS is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever. Bursting off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs
and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love, this incredible journey is filled with laughter,
soaring emotion and roof-raising rock 'n' roll.

"MEMPHIS has been dazzling audiences since its Broadway premiere, and for the first time ever, audiences around the country will be able to experience Broadway's current Best Musical at its finest - direct from Broadway - in their own hometown movie theater," said Dan Diamond, vice president of NCM Fathom.

MEMPHIS will launch a U. S. national tour in Memphis, Tenn., in October 2011 at the Orpheum Theatre. Additional cities, dates and casting will be announced at a later date. The national tour is being booked by The Booking Group, contact Meredith Blair (212) 869-9280 www.thebookinggroup.com.
