Learn more about Memphis the Musical with Beverley Knight, David Bryan, Joe Dipietro and Christopher Ashley talking about their excitement in bringing the show to London’s West End in October!
Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical, Memphis The Musical centres on Felicia, a black singer whose career is on the rise but who can’t break out of the segregated clubs of 1950s Memphis Tennessee.
She meets Huey, a white radio DJ whose love of music transcends race lines and airwaves. When the two collaborate, her soulful music reaches radio audiences everywhere, and the Golden Era of early rock ‘n’ roll takes flight. But as things start to heat up, they discover that the world may really not be ready for their music – or their love.
Fresh from her stellar West End success in The Bodyguard, Beverley Knight stars in Memphis, which has been a smash hit on Broadway and on a triumphant 55-city North American tour. Also joining the cast is Killian Donnelly who is currently starring as Deco in The Commitments.
With original songs by Grammy® winner and Bon Jovi co-founder David Bryan, and a gripping true-life-inspired story by writer Joe DiPietro, the explosive blend of electrifying music, soaring emotion and roof-raising energy that makes up Memphis will leave you exhilarated.
