Re: “MEMPHIS coming to Memphis

Chris, your comments about "All Shook Up" show a common misconception about the show. Everyone thought it was a show about Elvis - it was not! The show is based on William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and it has nothing to do with the story of Elvis Presley. The only thing "Elvis" in the show were the songs that he made famous.

So saying All Shook Up is a show about Memphis and/or Elvis is just wrong, though it seems most people still think it is. I suspect the show didn't do as well because people thought it was a show about Elvis. It was a fantastic production and everyone I know who saw it thought it was delightful.

Joe Depetri does some incredible arrangements and I hope his arrangements for Memphis measure up to those in All Shook Up.
