** DC PREMIERE **
** 2010 TONY-WINNER, BEST MUSICAL **

In the smoky halls and underground clubs of Memphis, Tennessee in the segregated ’50s, a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun falls in love with everything he shouldn’t: rock ‘n roll and an electrifying black singer named Felicia Farrell. The 2010 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical, MEMPHIS is an original story about fame, forbidden love, and the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice – and the music changed forever.

A zippy, exuberant musical – New York Post

“Entertaining … blasts you out the door humming, bopping and happy as all, well, Hockadoo.” — New York Daily

NOW COMING IN 2020-21 SEASON

Stay tuned for the announcement of the full 2020-21 lineup!
