Tony Award-winning MEMPHIS the Musical rocks into the Bologna Center this Sunday night in a performance not to be missed!

This Sunday night, four time Tony award-winning MEMPHIS the Musical comes to the Bologna Performing Arts Center at 7:00pm. MEMPHIS is inspired by actual events in 1950s Memphis, Tenn. The show features a radio DJ who plays black music on a white radio station for the first time and a promising young club singer who is looking for her big break.  The two fall in love amidst the racial controversy of the era.

MEMPHIS is a soulful Broadway musical with fabulous songs and entertaining dance numbers.  David Bryan, keyboardist and founding member of Bon Jovi wrote the Tony award-winning original score for MEMPHIS, with Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change) crafting the Tony-winning book. MEMPHIS is direct by Tony nominee Christopher Ashley (Xanadu) and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).

Prior to the show, award-winning Ubons BBQ of Yazoo is catering a Memphis-style barbeque dinner at the Bologna Center. Plates are $15 each, and include a pulled pork sandwich, Polk’s sausage, 3 sides, dessert, and a drink.  Dinner tickets must be purchased in advance at the Bologna Center Ticket Office or by calling (662) 846-4626.

Get ready to experience Broadway’s most exciting new destination—what the AP calls “the very essence of what a Broadway musical should be”—at the Bologna Center in Cleveland this weekend. Call the Ticket Office (662) 846-4626 or go online to reserve your seats today!
