Top 5 Reasons to See Memphis

5. The Music of My Soul
Featuring a brand new score with music by Bon Jovi's founding member/keyboardist David Bryan and lyrics by Bryan and Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change), the songs of Memphis will be stuck in your head for weeks to come! At times haunting and soulful, and at others soaring and fun, this award-winning score has something for everyone.

4. Dazzling Dance
Renowned choreography breathes new life into the 1950s with some of the most dazzling dance on stage today.

3. A Fantastical Story
In Memphis, an inspirational story finds root amidst the prejudice of the 1950s. Based on actual events, it is the tale of Huey Calhoun, a white radio DJ whose love of good music transcends race and airwaves. Memphis exudes all the exuberance, the emotion, the beauty, and the controversy of a wondrous, defining time in our history.

2. Award Winning-Performances
Audiences love Memphis: The show ran on Broadway for over three years! The critics love Memphis too: In 2010, Memphis took home three Drama Desk Awards and four Tony Awards®, including the award for Best Musical!

1. The Heart
An amazing cast of performers brings the world of Memphis to life every evening, leaving newly converted "Fantastical Fanatics" in their wake wherever they go. Why? Because the story, music and dance of Memphis combine into one powerful performance that speaks to the heart, inspires us to tap our toes, and reminds us why we love to come to theater in the first place.

Memphis plays at the Fox Cities P.A.C. October 15-20.
Tickets start at $50.
