Beverley Knight stays in Memphis to July

Published 28 January 2015

Beverley Knight will continue to entertain London audiences as Felicia in the hit West End production of Memphis The Musical until July after extending her run in the acclaimed London show.

Recording artist Knight, for whom Memphis The Musical marks only her second West End appearance, stars alongside former The Commitments star Killian Donnelly in the tale about a radio DJ who wants to change the world.

Directed by Christopher Ashley, the production charts the story of white radio DJ Huey – inspired by real-life Memphis disc jockey Dewey Phillips – and his collaboration with singer Felicia as they embark on a journey to bring her music to the masses and take her away from the segregated clubs of Tennessee.

Fans of the musical, which recently celebrated its 100th West End performance, are now able to download the London cast recording and, on 9 February, will be able to pick up their very own copy of the CD from the Shaftesbury Theatre and First Night Records.

Featuring an original score by Bon Jovi’s David Bryan, which includes The Music Of My Soul and Ain’t Nothin’ But A Kiss, Memphis The Musical opened at the Shaftesbury Theatre in October 2014, receiving a shower of four and five star reviews.

Official London Theatre’s Matthew Amer gave it “Ten out of ten(nessee)”, saying “Audiences won’t be walking in Memphis, they’ll be dancing, cheering and standing to applaud.”

The musical is booking at the Shaftesbury Theatre until October 2015. You can book tickets through us or, for performances until 13 February, though our discount ticket promotion Get Into London Theatre, which has tickets available at £20, £30 and £40.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
