You’ll have no problem finding a great variety of art, culture and entertaining events in Tempe, including a big one at ASU Gammage, which continues to bring great musical theatre to the Arizona. This week we can look forward to seeing another outstanding Broadway blockbuster, MEMPHIS, at ASU Gammage, March 5-10.  Inspired by actual events, MEMPHIS takes place in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1950’s and is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break.  Along the way, the two fall in love, which was totally taboo in that time and place. Memphis has a great story line, is full of rousing music and electrifying dancing and is sure to be one show not to be missed. Not surprisingly it won four 2012 Tony Awards, including Best Original Score and Best Musical.

There are plenty more arts and cultural events choose from in Tempe this week. View a complete listing of Tempe events, or call 480-894-8158 for more information.
