Memphis

The latest stop on Playhouse Square’s Broadway Series is the Tony Award-hogging story of the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis and the lusty lads and lasses who rose out of them. The action centers around a white DJ, a black singer, and their quest to take their music to the world. And yeah, sure, to navigate the waters of forbidden inter-racial romance along the way too. Among the show’s accolades: Best Musical, Best Original Score (by a former Bon Jovi hair farmer, no less), and Best Book (by Joe DiPietro, the man who brought you I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change). It’s closing in on its 1,000th performance in New York, but you won’t get so many chances here: Memphis opens February 28 and runs through March 11, with shows daily except for March 5. Tickets range from $10 to $85 or so, depending on performance.
