Cast of 'Memphis' The Musical Inspired By Graceland Visit

October 12, 2011

Set to open on this weekend in the city that shares the same name, the cast of ‘Memphis’ the musical found time out of their busy schedule to visit the home of Elvis Presley. While having fun away from the stage they also learned more about the great influence that Elvis had on the city of Memphis as well as around the world.

‘Memphis’ the musical, won four 2010 Tony Awards for best musical, book, original score and orchestrations and is the first national tour of a Broadway show to debut in the Orpheum. The storyline is set in a segregated Memphis of the 1950s, and is about a young white man with a gift for gab and a deep love for black music who shows up in a rhythm-and-blues club on Beale. He soon falls in love with a black singer, the sister of the club's owner.
