The Broadway musical is making its regio
nal premiere at Playhouse On The Square this spring, and on May 20 CrimeStoppers has the entire house at the main stage theatre (66 Cooper Street) for a party and show. A reception with delicious food and drinks starts at 6 p.m.; curtain rises at 8.
If you are among the few people on the planet who haven't heard about this show, it is loosely based on the life of one of the first rock and roll DJs, Dewey (Daddy-O) Phillips, who pioneered for his listening audience the suffusion of black and white music that gave birth to a revolution. Phillips' work is one of the reasons Memphis continues to be a worldwide mecca for music lovers and musicians alike.
The show played for four years on Broadway and won four Tony awards in 2010. It promises to be one of the biggest hits ever to come to Playhouse.
The CrimeStoppers Night At The Theatre is the organization's main fundraiser each year. Buying tickets, or making a donation to send an officer and guest, helps two nonprofits (CrimeStoppers and Playhouse). Each of the last two years, friends of CrimeStoppers have made it possible for more than 110 officers and their spouses or guests to attend.
