Memphis takes you to the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated1950s. It tells the fictional story of DJ Huey Calhoun, a good ole’ boy with a passion for R&B music and the electrifying Felicia Farrell, an up-coming black singer who he meets one night on Beale Street. Filled with high-octane dancing, songs that perfectly capture the era, and an absorbing tale of fame and forbidden love, this award-winning show offers soaring emotion and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll.
