Written by the Grammy Award-winning David Bryan (founding member of Bon Jovi) and Joe Dipietro and directed by Christopher Ashley, Memphis the Musical is inspired by true events from the underground clubs of 1950s Memphis. It follows the fame and forbidden love of a radio DJ and a club singer waiting for her big break.
