Memphis Celebrates 100th Performance...

Monday, January 11, 2010



New York City - To celebrate the 100th performance at the hit musical "Memphis," the first 100 people who buy tickets at the Shubert Box Office (225 West 44th Street) on Thursday, January 14 will get the newly released "Memphis" Cast Album. In addition "Memphis" will hold a lottery during the curtain call on Thursday, to invite a special member of the audience and their party to join the cast at Justin Timberlake's Manhattan hotspot Southern Hospitality. A winner will be chosen by a random seat location drawing. The lucky winner will then join David Bryan, cast and crew at the celebrity hangout. All ticket holders for the Thursday, January 14 performance are eligible.

"Memphis" features a brand new score with music by Bon Jovi's founding member/keyboardist Bryan and lyrics by Bryan and Joe DiPietro ("I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change"), who also pens the musical's book. "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"), with direction by Tony nominee Christopher Ashley ("Xanadu") and choreography by Sergio Trujillo ("Jersey Boys").

"Memphis" takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 1950s, a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun (Chad Kimball) fell in love with everything he shouldn't: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer (Montego Glover). "Memphis" is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever.

"Memphis" stars Kimball (Huey) and Glover (Felicia) with Derrick Baskin (Gator), J. Bernard Calloway (Delray), James Monroe Iglehart (Bobby), Tony nominee Michael McGrath (Mr. Simmons), and Cass Morgan (Mama).

The company also includes Jennifer Allen, Brad Bass, Tracee Beazer, James Brown III, Kevin Covert, Hillary Elk, Bryan Fenkart, Dionne Figgins, Rhett George, Tyrone A. Jackson, John Jellison, Sydney Morton, Vivian Nixon, John Eric Parker, Jermaine R. Rembert, LaQuet Sharnell, Ephraim M. Sykes, Cary Tedder, Daniel J. Watts, Katie Webber, Charlie Williams and Dan'yelle Williamson.

Tickets for "Memphis" range from $41.50 to $126.50 (including a $1.50 facility fee). The performance schedule is as follows: Tuesday at 7 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8 p.m., Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2 p.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.Telecharge.com, call 212-239-6200 or visit the Shubert Theatre Box Office (225 West 44th Street).
