1954: Elvis Presley gives his first concert in Memphis

Happy to share that Memphis, an original Broadway musical about the underground clubs of the segregated 50's, is set to open at the Shubert Theater (255 West 44th Street, NYC) today.

Memphis tells the story of Huey Calhoun, a young white DJ, and his love for and musical collaboration with Felicia Farrell, an "electrifying black singer."Calhoun is played by Chad Kimball, and Farrell is played by Montego Glover.

Memphis features an original story by JOE DiPIETRO (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change) and a brand-new score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
