Memphis The Musical: Australasian Premiere

StageArt presents the Australasian premiere of MEMPHIS THE MUSICAL. October 6 - 29: Strictly limited season. 

Winner of four 2010 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Book, Original Score and Orchestrations, it is a story about race and romance in 1950s Memphis. 

Meet Huey Calhoun an irrepressible poor, white DJ hipster who wants to change the world and a black club singer Felicia Farrell who is ready for her big break. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves. This racially explosive story transports you back to the 1950's, when Rock & Roll was about to take over the world, when people were screaming for social progress and when falling in forbidden love was not just frowned upon, it was a crime.
