I love when you go to a show and you remember something amazing about it. Certain shows you remember the music from it like Phantom, others you remember a character like in Les Miserables or a routine like in any show that focuses on dancing or comedy and sometimes you don’t remember much of it but still enjoyed the show. Although the only character’s name that I remember is Huey (because he was seriously funny), I actually remember more than half of the songs and fell in love with the music in Memphis the Musical.
Memphis the musical is all about music which is why it was important for them to get the music perfect for it. They cover everything from ballads to rock and roll and also have R&B throughout the show. The whole store is about a white DJ that loves “colored” music and wants to play it on the radio. He eventually finds this singer from a club in the black part of Memphis and instantly falls in love with her and her voice. Unfortunately her brother gets in the way and tries his best to keep them apart. Huey makes a deal and promises her that he will get her on the radio and that she will be a hit. He believed in her music and “colored” music enough that he broke into a DJ booth when interviewing for a job and took over so that he could put “real colored music” on the radio and introduce rock and roll to Memphis.
Memphis the musical has an amazing cast recording and almost every song on it is incredible.
