“It’s a show about taking chances, it’s a show about falling in love with art, it’s a show about being color-blind, and it’s a show about really believing in something. I think “Memphis” is the type of show that pushes the audience member to the edge of their seat, with excitement, with passion, with energy. It’s got one of the most spectacular casts you’re going to see. And if you’re looking for a really sort of toe tapping, rockin’ out good time, you’re not going to find a better show than ‘Memphis’.”
