Inspired by a true story and called "a rockin', bluesy favorite" by the Chicago Tribune, "Memphis" comes to RiverCenter for the Performing Arts in Columbus. Tickets are 40% off for this Tony Award winner for Best Musical.
With this deal, Orchestra tickets are $29.50 (reg. $49.50) for performances on Wednesday, Dec. 4, and Thursday, Dec. 5, at 7:30 p.m.
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."
