Tabard 2015-2016 Season Presents

September 23–October 16

TURN UP THE DIAL... From the underground dance clubs of Memphis, Tennessee, comes a hot Broadway musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs, and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, MEMPHIS follows the courageous story of a white 1950s DJ who wants to change the world and an up-and-coming black singer ready for her big break.

MEMPHIS garnered four 2010 Tony Awards: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Orchestrations. With book and lyrics by Joe Di Pietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change; Over the River And through the Woods) and music and lyrics by Bon Jovi's David Bryan, this explosive musical also garnered multiple Drama Desk awards and Outer Critics Circle awards, including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Composer, and Outstanding Orchestrations.

MEMPHIS will be directed by award-winner Jay Manley, with music direction by Catherine Snider, and choreography by Dottie Lester-White.
