IBJ Night at the Movies/Theater: 'Memphis'

April 15, 2011

Last year's Tony-winning Best Musical, "Memphis," isn't on the Broadway in Indianapolis lineup next season. Nor is the musical, telling the story of DJ Huey Calhoun and his romance with up-and-coming singer Felicia Farrell in the segregated 1950s, licensed to be produced by regional theaters.

But that doesn't mean you can't see it.

On April 28 and 30 and May 1-3, "Memphis" will be shown in movie theaters as recorded live with the original cast. For more information on the screenings and a complete list of theaters, click here.

One theater showing "Memphis"  is Castleton Square 14. And on April 28, you and a guest can join me for the show. I've got two pairs of tickets to give away.

As a bonus, the folks at Applause Books, publisher of the soon-to-be-released complete libretto of "Memphis," have offered a selection of its recent titles to include in the prize package.

That means you could also win "Broadway Musicals: The Biggest Hit & The Biggest Flop of the Season" by Peter Filichia, "At This Theater" by Robert Viagas and Louis Botto, Laura Frankos' "The Broadway Musical Quiz Book" and more. (To peruse the complete Applause Books catalog, click here.)

To win, just enter below and tell me your best Broadway musical experience (whether actually on Broadway or elsewhere).

I'll pick two winners at random.
