    Genesius Theatre Reading

    Music is the universal language. It can bridge the distance between people and cultures, and cross chasms both natural and man-made. And in 1950’s Memphis, the cradle of rock n’ roll, music can make dreams come true, or it can shatter them … sometimes at the same time.

    Come and meet Huey, a DJ ahead of his time with no patience for conventions or racism, and Felicia, a talented singer whose skin color keeps her silky voice off of white radio stations and out of white homes. These two will be tied together in ways both large and small for years to come, and it all begins when Genesius Theatre presents "MEMPHIS"
    Playing August 10th thru the 19th, 2018.

    Genesius Theatre Reading

    Opens August 10th at Genesius Theatre Reading!

    From the underground dance clubs of 1950’s Memphis, Tennessee, comes the Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, Memphis is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break. MEMPHIS is filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll. Winner of four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical and two 2015 Olivier Awards, Memphis features a Tony-winning book by Joe DiPietro and a Tony-winning original score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
