KALAMAZOO—Tony Award-winning musical "Memphis" is coming to Western Michigan University's Miller Auditorium for two performances at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 11 and 12.

Purchase tickets online:

"Memphis" takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 1950s, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun falls in love with everything he shouldn't: rock 'n' roll and an electrifying black singer. This original story is filled with laughter, vibrant choreography and roof-raising rock 'n' roll music.

The show features music by Bon Jovi’s founding member and keyboardist David Bryan and lyrics by Bryan and Joe DiPietro, who also penned the musical’s book.
