Presented by the Berklee Musical Theater Ensemble and Berklee Musical Theater Orchestra, Memphis tells the fictional story of DJ Huey Calhoun, a good ole' local boy with a passion for R&B, and Felicia Farrell, an up-and-coming African American singer who he meets one fateful night on Beale Street.
Set in the 1950s in the birthplace of rock 'n' roll, Memphis tells the tale of their dangerous affair. As their careers rise, their relationship is tested by ambition and the pressures of a world unable to accept their love.
*Content Advisory: The script of Memphis contains some violence and racist language and behavior reflective of the time period that some audience members may find offensive. *
This is a two-night event taking place on November 15th and 16th. There is a 7:30pm start for both nights.
