New musical Memphis opens in the West End in under two months and to get you excited a new featurette has been released.
The featurette entitled Memphis Lives in Beverley sees star Beverley Knight travel to Memphis to immerse herself in the music, history and culture in preparation for her role as Felicia. She visits legendary landmarks such as Sun Studio and Willie Mitchell’s Royal Studio where she records a song from the show on Al Green’s microphone.
Memphis is inspired by true events from the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee and follows the fame and forbidden love of a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break.
The show also stars Killian Donnelly (The Commitments), Rolan Bell, Tyrone Huntley, Claire Machin, Jason Pennycooke and Mark Roper.
