FM Cultural Calendar | Starting Monday, December 26, 2011
From the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, comes a hot new Broadway musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, MEMPHIS is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break. Winner of four 2010 Tonys including Best Musical, MEMPHIS features music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
