Huey Calhoun is an impoverished, illiterate white man in the 1950s South. Despite racial stigmas, he finds his passion in the city’s black nightclubs, falling in love with both the music and Felicia, the sister of one of the club owners (“The Music of My Soul”). When his irrepressible personality and protagonist’s duty to advance the plot land him a DJ gig at a local radio station, he instantly begins promoting black music, earning himself wild popularity with the young crowds and a neat catch phrase, “Hockadoo!” (“Everybody Wants to be Black on Saturday Night”). With so much influence over the area’s ears, he is able to boost the career of Felicia, beginning a love affair between the two that the local population refuses to accept. Despite their setbacks, Huey and Felicia earn national attention, but under the spotlight they’re forced to test the importance of their principles (“Stand Up”).
Netting four Tony awards during its Broadway run, including Best Score and Best Musical, Memphis features show-stopping tunes strengthened by the melodic might of David Bryan, the Grammy-winning keyboardist and founding member of Bon Jovi. Joining Bryan behind the scenes is Joe Dipietro, whose writing for Memphis earned him two Tonys and prompted the New York Post to call the show “a zippy, exuberant musical.”
Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre’s magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris’s Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space’s grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon’s victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
