MEMPHIS...The birth of Rock and Roll?

Memphis, the new rock 'n' roll musical penned by Joe DiPietro, music by David Bryan (Bon Jovi) begins previews September 23rd, 2009 at The Shubert Theatre.
From the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, Race music was on the rise to becoming the popular R&B, Rock and Roll we love today. This new musical has heart, soul and energy to burn. The story follows a white radio DJ named Huey Calhoun whose love of music transcends race line and airwaves. She’s a black singer whose career is on the rise, but who can’t break out of segregated clubs. When the two collaborate, her soulful music reaches radio audiences everywhere, and the Golden Era of early rock ‘n’ roll takes flight. But as things start to heat up, whether the world is really ready for their music – or their love – is put to the test.
Call APPLAUSE now to put your request in for tickets to this exciting new musical.
