Memphis, the musical now at Aronoff Center, ends February 3
Set in 1950s segregated Memphis, the show follows a white radio DJ who loves black music and finds his way to Beale Street and to a black club singer who is ready for her big break. The set designs are terrific and the dancing is energetic.
Winner of four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Memphis features a Tony-winning original score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
Freud’s Last Session now at Ensemble Theatre, ends February 16
This play centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites a then little-known professor, C.S. Lewis, to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex and the meaning of life—only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own. Not just a powerful debate, this is a profound and deeply touching play about two men who boldly addressed the greatest questions of all time. This regional premiere is one hour and 25 minutes with no intermission. The Ensemble Theatre is located at 1127 Vine Street in OTR.
