Inspired by a true story and called "a rockin', bluesy favorite" by the Chicago Tribune, "Memphis" comes to Easton for one performance on Sunday, Feb. 9, at 3 p.m. Tickets are up to half off for this Tony Award winner for Best Musical.
All tickets, including Orchestra seats, are $30 (reg. $55-$60) at the State Theatre Center for the Arts.
Set in racially segregated Tennessee, "Memphis" tells the story of the forbidden love between a white radio DJ and up-and-coming African American club singer. The New York Times says its music "evokes the powerhouse funk of James Brown, the hot guitar riffs of Chuck Berry and the smooth harmonies of the Temptations."
