Memphis The Musical Opens In London Tonight
A whole bunch of Londoners (and visitors to London) are about to get a taste of Memphis. Memphis The Musical debuts tonight in London's West End at the Shaftesbury Theatre. It will play through spring of next year.
My colleague Jonathan is there to help promote the big opening and he snapped a few photos of the taxis in London. A whole fleet of them is decked out in Memphis logos. That's pretty awesome.
Earlier this year, one of the stars of the London cast, Beverley Knight, (she plays club singer "Felicia") came to Memphis to see for herself where it all began. She visited all our music sites and performed with the Stax Academy and recorded at Sun Studio.
