The 2010 Tony Award-winning musical Memphis, by Joe DiPietro and David Bryan, will celebrate its one year anniversary on Broadway on Oct. 19. The cast and crew celebrated the achievement with a party at BB Kings on Oct. 17.
The rock musical about an interracial love affair in the 1950's segregated South broke records for the Oct. 4-10 week, when the production grossed over $1 million for the first time since it arrived on Broadway in September 2009. Memphis earned the 2010 Tony Award for Best Musical.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
