Visitors to Oklahoma City have the opportunity to see the show that’s currently blowing the roof off Broadway as Memphis, the 2010 Tony® Award Winner for Best Musical, makes its Oklahoma City debut at the Civic Center Music Hall November 8-13.
Memphis takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 50’s, 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.
Critically acclaimed Memphis won four 2010 Tony® Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Book, and Best Orchestrations. Memphis won four Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Performance by an Actress, Outstanding Music and Outstanding Orchestration. Memphis has also won four Outer Critic Circle Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Score, Outstanding Actress and Outstanding Choreography.
David Richardson of WOR Radio calls Memphis “The biggest hit on Broadway” while Charles Isherwood of the New York Times says, “David Bryan evokes the powerhouse funk of James Brown, the hot guitar riffs of Chuck Berry, the smooth harmonies of the Temptations, the silken, bouncy pop of the great girl groups of the period.” The New York Post raves “Of such thrills, Broadway is made,” Newsday calls the show “A smash! An extraordinary show,” the Daily News promises that Memphis will “Blast you out the door humming and happy.”
Memphis is presented by Celebrity Attractions and is part of Celebrity Attractions 2011-2012 Broadway Season which includes The Addams Family, Stomp, Fiddler on the Roof, the add-on productions of Mamma Mia! and the Tulsa engagement of Jersey Boys.
