If you can't get to New York in the next couple of weeks but still want to see a real Broadway musical you're in luck. "Memphis" Broadway's current Tony Award winning Best Musical, receives a four night movie house run at the end of the month.
The musical which was filmed live with the original Broadway cast plays 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 28; Saturday, April 30, and Tuesday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m., with a special 12:30 p.m. matinee on Sunday May 1. Local theaters hosting all four shows are Sacramento Greenback Lane 16, 6233 Garfield Ave., Sacramento and Natomas Marketplace, 3561 Truxel Rd. Sacramento. "Memphis" will also play April 28, May 1 and May 3 at El Dorado Hills Stadium 13, 2101 Vine St., El Dorado Hills. The event will be shown in more than 530 movie theaters nationwide.
This is the first time a current Tony Award-winning Best Musical will show in movie theaters while still running on Broadway. The 50's set rock n' roll musical takes place in the segregated south where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun (played by Tony nominee Chad Kimball) falls in love with up and coming black singer played by Music Circus veteran, Montego Glover.
Tickets for "Memphis" are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com.
