Set in the smoky clubs of Beale Street during the segregated '50s, "MEMPHIS: THE MUSICAL" is loosely based on the true story of Memphian, Dewey Phillips, who was the first to interview a young Elvis Presley and play his debut record "That's All Right/Blue Moon Of Kentucky" in July of 1954. From the WHBQ radio station located in the historic Hotel Chisca, Phillips started a revolution that helped redefine the cultural landscape of America.
