INDIANAPOLIS – “Memphis,” the 2010 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical, shows at Clowes Memorial Hall April 1 through April 6. Tickets are on sale now, starting at $28.
“Memphis” takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated ’50s, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun fell in love with everything he shouldn’t: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer.
“Memphis” is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves – filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll.
The show features a brand new Tony winning score with music by Bon Jovi’s founding member and keyboardist David Bryan and lyrics by Bryan and Joe DiPietro (“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”), who also pens the musical’s book. Bryan and DiPietro also collaborated on the award-winning off-Broadway hit, “The Toxic Avenger.”
“Memphis” is based on a concept by the late George W. George (producer of the Tony nominated “Bedroom Farce” and the film “My Dinner With Andre”), with direction by Tony nominee Christopher Ashley (“Xanadu”) and choreography by Sergio Trujillo, who is currently represented by three shows on Broadway (“Memphis,” “Jersey Boys” and “The Addams Family”).
Critically acclaimed “Memphis” won four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score (David Bryan and Joe DiPietro), Best Book (Joe DiPietro) and Best Orchestrations (David Bryan and Daryl Waters).
