Set in the musically-rich Tennessee city, “Memphis” tells the story of a local DJ with a passion for R&B music and an up-and-coming singer that he meets one fateful night on Beale Street. As their careers rise, their relationship is challenged by personal ambition and the pressures and prejudices of the outside world. “Memphis” has received eight Tony Award nominations and won four Tony Awards, including Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Orchestrations and Best Musical. Panelists will include members of The Rep’s creative team in a conversation about what it’s like to bring this exciting production to life.
