Memphis National Tour to Play Chicago in the Fall

News   Memphis National Tour to Play Chicago in the Fall
 
The Tony-winning Broadway musical Memphis will play a two-week engagement in Chicago this fall.

The David Bryan-Joe DiPietro musical, which will launch its tour in Memphis in October, will play Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre Nov. 22-Dec. 4.

Memphis features book and lyrics by DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change) and a score and lyrics by Bon Jovi's Bryan. Christopher Ashley directs.

Chad Kimball (Into the Woods, Lennon, The Civil War, My Life with Albertine) and Montego Glover (The Color Purple, Ragtime, Aida) star as DJ Huey Calhoun, and his muse, Felicia Farrell, respectively, in the Broadway production. Casting for the tour has yet to be announced.

"In the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated '50s," press notes state, "a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun fell in love with everything he shouldn't: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer. Memphis is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever."

Tickets for the Chicago engagement are available now for groups of 15 or more by calling Broadway In Chicago Group Sales at (312) 977-1710. Individual tickets will go on sale at a later date. Visit MemphistheMusical.
