So, I was wildly tweeting yesterday about my excitement in going to see the show MEMPHIS on tour with my niece. I had seen the show on Broadway last year and absolutely loved it – it was one of those shows where I knew very little about it going in, but going out I had tears in my eyes from the sheer talent of the cast. Their voices literally brought me to tears. This does not happen often.
It happened again last night when I saw the touring version. I would see it again tonight if I could.
If you are in the NYC area, I insist you go see this show on Broadway – it currently stars Adam Pascal, who was the original Roger in RENT, which is, as you know, my ULTIMATE FAVORITE SHOW EVAH. So it’s extra special good because he’s in it, I’m sure. And if it comes to a theater near you on tour, I absolutely insist that you go.
In the meantime, check this out.
