Milwaukee, Wis., April 29, 2011. . . . .Marcus Theatres® today announced that MEMPHIS, Broadway’s current Tony Award®-winning Best Musical is coming to select theatre locations for an exclusive three-night run on Thursday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, May 1 at 12:30 p.m. and Tuesday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at This is the first time the current Tony Award®-winning musical will be presented in movie theaters while concurrently running on Broadway.


MEMPHIS takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 50’s, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun (Chad Kimball) fell in love with everything he shouldn’t: rock and roll and an exhilarating black singer (Montego Glover). MEMPHIS is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice and the music changed forever. In addition to the electrifying musical, audiences will be treated to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the production that won four 2010 Tony Awards®.


Presented by NCM Fathom and Broadway Worldwide, MEMPHIS was captured live in performance at Broadway’s renowned Shubert Theatre in New York City with the original Broadway cast. MEMPHIS is directed by Tony® nominee Christopher Ashley (Xanadu), with choreography by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), and an all-star cast including Tony® nominee Chad Kimball, Tony® nominee Montego

Glover, Derrick Baskin, J. Bernard Calloway, James Monroe Iglehart, Tony® nominee Michael McGrath



and Cass Morgan. MEMPHIS also features a Tony®-winning original score with music and lyrics composed by David Bryan, Grammy Award®-winning keyboard player and founding member of Bon Jovi.
