Summary, etc.:
The Tony Award-winning musical Memphis takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated '50s, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun falls in love with everything he shouldn't: rock n' roll, and an electrifying black singer. Bursting off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs, and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love, this incredible journey is filled with laughter, soaring emotion, and roof-raising rock n' roll.
