Memphis: The Musical

In the 1950s, on the downtown streets of Memphis, TN, Rock & Roll was born. The marriage of downtrodden blues, uplifting gospel, and forlorn country made way to a genre of music that would, one day, speak to the soul of the entire world. But for now, in a seedy bar on Beale, this music has spoken to the soul of a local country-boy. The girl that the sound has come from has stolen his heart. Will the objections from their families or the challenges of society be too much for the couple to withstand? Or will Huey and Felecia let nothing steal their rock and roll?
