“Memphis,” the 2010 Tony Award® Winner for Best Musical, and the show that’s currently blowing the roof off Broadway, runs from July 24 through July 29 at the San Diego Civic Theatre, located at San Diego Civic Theatre, 3rd and B Street, in downtown San Diego.

“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. The show features a brand new 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.

Scenic Design is by Tony® Award winner David Gallo (“The Drowsy Chaperone,” “Reasons to Be Pretty”), Costume Design is by Tony nominee Paul Tazewell (“In The Heights”), Lighting Design is by Tony Award winner Howell Binkley (“Jersey Boys”) and Sound Design is by Ken Travis (“The Threepenny Opera”).
