October 18, 2011

Check out this video of the cast of “MEMPHIS” when they toured Graceland last week. The cast is in Memphis kicking off their nationwide tour at The Orpheum. They took time out of their busy schedule and found inspiration at the home of Elvis Presley. During their visit they learned more about the great influence that Elvis had on the city of Memphis as well as around the world.

"MEMPHIS" 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.
