Review: MY FAIR LADY at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis
July 28, 2022

What did our critic think of MY FAIR LADY at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis? My Fair Lady is a musical based on George Bernard Shaw's 1913 play Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Lowe. The story centers around Cockney flower girl Eliza Dolittle, who becomes Professor Henry Higgin's 'experiment' in phonetics but quickly proves to Higgins and to the audiences that she is quite more and is more of a lady than anyone can originally see. If you enjoy the 'Golden Age' of musicals, this one is not to be missed.

Review: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis
June 30, 2022

What did our critic think of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis? Andrew Lloyd-Webber fans can certainly appreciate the 2021-2022 Orpheum season! Not long after Cats comes Jesus Christ Superstar, a powerful rock musical that centers around the last days of Jesus Christ. The show is actually celebrating its 50th anniversary and brings a completetly different dynamic to the Orpheum stage.

BWW Review: THE BAND'S VISIT at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis
April 14, 2022

The Band's Visit is an intimate 90 minute musical with no intermission, no big show-stopping numbers, and no 'flash' as we say in show biz. It is a very real performance about a random moment in history, based on the 2007 Israeli film of the same name.

The musical opened at the Orpheum Theatre on Webber's birthday and continues to dazzle audiences with fun costumes, incredible dancing and acrobatics, and some pretty meow-tiful music ( get ready for a whole lot of cat puns ;)

BWW Review: TOOTSIE at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis
February 16, 2022

Tootsie is a new musical based on the 1982 film starring Dustin Hoffman. The story follows Michael Dorsey ('Is he an actor? Yes, of course, he is. Is he successful? Yes, of course, he's not') and the opening number immediately makes his rotten reputation evident and known.

BWW Review: HADESTOWN at The Orpheum Theatre Memphis
February 3, 2022
