After Memphis took home Tony’s biggest prize for Best Musical, its lead producers Sue Frost and Randy Adams couldn't help but shout the show's signature exclamation, "Hockadoo!" The musical is readying to hit the road as a tour will debut in its namesake city itself, Memphis, in fall 2011. Memphis may even be headed to the west coast, as Frost and Adams acknowledged Hollywood has been calling to give the show the big screen treatment. "Two major studios are interested," said Adams. "I don't know exactly what the offers are, but I know they're in." In a Tony night that saw major Hollywood stars sweep many of the acting categories, Frost and Adams aren't worried about the show's lack of star power. "We always set out to make the show itself the star," said Frost.
In composer David Bryan's second trip to the Tony press room, he said he's heading back to his day job as keyboardist for Bon Jovi tomorrow. “Memphis lives in me, and I’m bringing it around the world,” Bryan said, as he’ll fly to London where the band is currently touring. “They’re my brothers,“ he says of the group, who even filmed a special Tony night message for him which aired during the telecast. “I’ve texted them already, but it’s five o’clock in the morning there so I haven’t gotten any texts back!” Bryan will have some extra luggage as he boards the plane…two shiny new trophies! “Hopefully I can get these through customs,” he joked. “I’m taking them carry-on.”
