Memphis is the winner of the 2010 Tony Award for Best Musical. It is inspired by actual events and takes place in the 1950s dance clubs of Memphis, Tennessee. It is critically acclaimed for its catchy songs and amazing dance numbers incorporated with the classic scenario of forbidden love. The story follows a white radio DJ looking to make it big and a black club singer that shares the same aspiration. This musical has everything you want including great laughs, powerful emotion, and face melting rock n roll. It won three additional Tony Awards including Best Score with music by David Bryan of Bon Jovi. Christopher Ashley directs as Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) does the choreography.
The winner of Best Musical has a short run here in Chicago starting on November 23rd and running through December 4th. There is no better city to catch this musical (well maybe Memphis) than Chicago, a place that is so rich with jazz, blues, and rock n roll history.
