Memphis at Cain Park


MEMPHIS Cain Park-style is a total delight. It’s a must-see for anyone who likes well-sung and –performed rock music...and wants to relax in the Alma Theater’s 'in nature' setting. HOCKADOO!" —Broadway World

"The performances are king in this show, and those are spectacular." —Cleveland Scene

"Choreographer Leilani Barrett makes the small stage seem larger than it is as the dancers fill every nook and cranny with movement. Music can be a wonderful and powerful meeting place. This Cain Park show tunefully celebrates this idea." —Cool Cleveland

"What's the best way to celebrate this summer in Cleveland? Head to Memphis...the Musical at Cain Park!" —In the Land of Cleve

Inspired by actual events, Memphis the Musical is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break. Audiences will be taken along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves – filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll. Winner of four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical and two 2015 Olivier Awards, Memphis features a Tony-winning book by Joe DiPietro and a Tony-winning original score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
