Memphis: The Birth of Rock and Roll

We're talkin' downtown, down-home Memphis of the 1950s! A downright demented deejay named Huey is spinning the music of black and white America together for the first time. From Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change and Over the River and Through the Woods) and David Bryan (keyboardist, composer and founding member of Bon Jovi) comes a rafter-rattling musical that immortalizes the man who gave rock its original roll.

In our upcoming segments of the Backstage at The 5th blog we'll be taking you backstage the rehearsals and performances of this electrifying musical all about rock, race and romance!
