Memphis Preview


With the first preview shows beginning last night, the countdown is on before the curtain rises on MEMPHIS debuting at the Shaftesbury Theatre on Thursday 23rd October.

Inspired by true events from the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, MEMPHIS follows the fame and forbidden love of a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break.

The West End production is a transfer of the hit Broadway musical of the same name, with a Grammy award winning score by original Bon Jovi member David Bryan and book by Joe DiPietro. Starring multi-award winning recording artist Beverly Knight (in her second West End role after The Bodyguard) as lounge singer Felicia Farrell and Killian Donnelly as DJ Huey Calhoun.

Here is a link to a video preview on YouTube:                         

And here are some images from the gruelling rehearsal schedule for the energetic cast. As the video and these images can attest to, there is a joyfulness and zest to the performers that will have people dancing in the aisles of London.

Opening night is on Thursday 23rd October
