Memphis Celebrates 100 Performances

One of this season's most critically acclaimed shows has just reached a milestone. Memphis The Musical just celebrated it's 100th performance on January 14.The show which began previews at the Shubert Theatre on October 19, 2009 had been a crowd pleaser since day one. In fact I have yet to hear from anybody who did not absolutely love it. The sad part is that in spite of all it's acclaim it is struggling at the box office. Last week the show was at sixty-one percent. Now bear in mind it's January when a lot of shows show low ticket sales. My guess is that with the lack of new musicals this year the show will try to hang on at least until the Tony Awards. Besides The Addams Family it is the only show with a score exclusively written for the stage. Will Memphis reach two hundred performances? We will soon find out.
