Broadway's 2010 Tony award-winning best musical, Memphis, -- the story of a white DJ in the '50s who falls for rock and roll and a black singer -- is coming to a movie theater in Houston near you.
If you can't wait till October 25-30 when Gexa Energy/Broadway Across America brings the live national tour to the Hobby Theater, or you just want to get ready for that, then you'll have the opportunity to do so courtesy of Fathom, which is bringing in a movie version of the show. And we can offer you tickets to the 7:30 p.m. May 28 screening at Houston's Marq'E Stadium 22, 7620 Katy Freeway.
And what do you have to do to score a pair of screening tickets?
Write us about why you deserve the tickets, either because you like love stories, rock and roll or Memphis. Whatever. The two best of the best will each get a five-track cd sampler of songs from the show.
