One Fateful Night on Beale Street

 

Presented by the Berklee Musical Theater Ensemble and Berklee Musical Theater Orchestra, Memphis tells the fictional story of disc jockey Huey Calhoun, a “good ol’ boy” with a passion for R&B, and Felicia Farrell, an up-and-coming African American singer, who meet each other one fateful night on Beale Street.

 

Set in the 1950s in rock ‘n’ roll’s early stomping grounds, Memphis tells the tale of their dangerous affair. As their careers rise, their relationship is tested by ambition and the pressures of a world unable to accept their love.

 

Memphis takes place at the Berklee Performance Center, 136 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, MA, on November 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $8 and $13 in advance / $12 and $17 day of show. Tickets can be purchased online at berklee.edu/BPC, at the BPC Box Office, or by calling 617-747-2261.
