FORT LAUDERDALE – Slow Burn Theatre Company and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts present Memphis, the award-winning Broadway musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love.  Performances in the Amaturo Theater will be held Thursday, March 22–Sunday, April 8.

This winner of four Tony Awards® including Best Musical is inspired by real events and the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tenn. Memphis tells the story of a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break.

The creative team of Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change) and Bon Jovi's founding member David Bryan also took home Tony Awards for what the Associated Press labeled “the very essence of what a Broadway musical should be."

Slow Burn Theatre Artistic Director Patrick Fitzwater directs and choreographs this musical that is filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roof-raising rock 'n' roll.

Performances are Thursday–Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. with a matinee on Wednesday, March 28 at 1 p.m.

Tickets are $47–$60. Ticketmaster is the only official ticketing service of the Broward Center, Parker Playhouse and affiliated venues. Buy tickets online at or; by phone at 954.462.0222 or the Broward Center’s AutoNation Box Office. Know who you are buying from when you purchase tickets.
