Memphis The Musical opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre on 23 October 2014. I recently attended a preview show and I came out with a big smile on my face determined to learn all songs by heart from the newly bought special limited edition CD Memphis. I am not usually so enthusiastic about musicals, but there was absolutely nothing I did not like about Memphis! The singers were all absolutely brilliant, the retro clothes were to die for and of course the music soulful and exciting – no surprise considering the involvement of Bon Jovi’s David Bryan who composed the original score for the Musical. Perfect night out for people who love good music and want to go back into a musical journey to the R&B roots.
