Took my mum and 13 yr old cousin to see Memphis, and we loved it. The story confused my cousin slightly so wouldn't recommend for anyone younger than 13, but the dancing, acting and singing were fab. Definitely worth a watch!

Absolutely fantastic show, one of those that you don't need to know the songs beforehand to still throughly enjoy. The first half is definitely better than the second.

Outstanding singing in this vibrant show. You may not know the songs but the atmosphere sucks you in and the air is charged with energy. Another must see.

Took my husband to see Memphis as he's never been to a musical before but he likes Beverley Knight so hoped he'd enjoy it. He wasn't disappointed, neither was I. We had good seats in Row T and could see the whole stage area, would...More
