A new musical in London
A new musical called ‘Memphis’ is about to open in a London theatre this week. It is based on the life of a DJ called Dewey Phillips who worked in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1950s. The musical tells the story of how he falls in love with a beautiful singer and is determined to make her famous.
The lead role in the London production will be played by a well-known British soul singer called Beverley Knight. The show has been described as a gripping, true story which will leave the audience feeling thrilled and exhilarated. It has songs, dancing and a stunning stage set.
The musical has already been a success in New York and has been performed in 55 cities in the USA. Only time will tell if it will be equally successful in London.
