MEMPHIS, the 2010 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical, will come to the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C., for a limited engagement. Tickets are on sale now for three performances on Friday, May 1 at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.) and Saturday, May 2 at 2 p.m. (doors at 1 p.m.) and 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.).

Critically acclaimed MEMPHIS won four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score (David Bryan and Joe DiPietro); four Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Music (David Bryan) and four Outer Critic Circle Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Score (David Bryan & Joe DiPietro) and Outstanding Choreography (Sergio Trujillo).

“MEMPHIS is Mighty, Magnificent, Miraculous…ingenious staging and direction, energizing, fresh, and joyful choreography and an infectious dynamite score!” said the Houston Chronicle and the Toronto Star called MEMPHIS “an explosion of energy, joy and emotion you won’t want to miss!… with singing that rocks your soul and dancing that rocks your world!” “MEMPHIS is a Masterpiece!” exclaimed BroadwayWorld.com

MEMPHIS takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 50’s, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun fell in love with everything he shouldn’t: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer. MEMPHIS is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves — filled with laughter, vibrant choreography and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll.

The show features a Tony winning score with music by Bon Jovi’s founding member and keyboardist David Bryan and lyrics by Bryan and Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change), who also pens the musical’s book. Bryan and DiPietro also collaborated on the award-winning off-Broadway hit, The Toxic Avenger. MEMPHIS is based on a concept by the late George W. George (producer of the Tony nominated Bedroom Farce and the film My Dinner with Andre).
