Hock-a-doo!

Feinstein’s/54 Below is going to be tearing the roof off the joint when the Tony Award-winning musical, Memphis, returns for one night only in an all-star engagement reuniting members of the original cast plus some Broadway newcomers!

Memphis tells the tale of pioneering deejay Huey Calhoun and his passion to integrate the world of rock and roll in the segregated South of the 1950s. When Huey meets his muse, Felicia, he will stop at nothing to get the world to hear the music of his soul.

Memphis features music by Bon Jovi’s David Bryan and lyrics by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change). This Tony Award winner for Best Musical features such songs as “The Music of My Soul,” “Colored Woman,” “Memphis Lives In Me,” and “Big Love.”
