As part of its Direct from Broadway special programming, the Downing Film Center will feature in HD the Tony Award®-winning musical Memphis at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3.
The 2010 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Memphis delighted audiences at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre over some 1,200 performances. Set in the underground clubs of the segregated 50s, a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun (Tony nominee Chad Kimball) falls in love with everything he shouldn’t: rock ’n’ roll and an electrifying black singer (Tony nominee Montego Glover). Memphis is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever. Bursting off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a tale of fame and forbidden love, this emotional journey is filled with laughter and roof-raising rock ’n’ roll.
Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for Downing members, and can be purchased at the box office or at the website at downingfilmcenter.com. For more information, call the box office at 845-561-3686 or visit the website.
