Inspired by actual events, Memphis follows the story of Huey Calhoun, a fictitious white radio DJ who was one of the first to play black music in 1950s Memphis, and Felicia, a black club singer who is hoping for her big break. Filled with laughter, soaring emotion, forbidden love, irresistible dancing, rhythm and blues, and roof raising rock ‘n’ roll, this winner of four Tony Awards including “Best Musical” features a Tony-winning book by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change), and a Tony-winning original score with music by David Bryan, one of the founding members of Bon Jovi.
