Comments from published critics
‘‘The biggest hit on Broadway this year or any other year! See it even if you have to bribe somebody to get tickets.’’
‘‘I guarantee you a rambunctious good time!’’
‘‘The sensuous, soulful sound of rhythm 'n' blues hits the audience right from the start of [this] exhilarating new musical now shaking Broadway's Shubert Theatre. Take a deep breath as the curtain rises because the exuberance doesn't stop.’’
‘‘Don't hesitate before booking a ticket to 'Memphis'... Joyfully entertaining in musical and theatrical terms. The show could well turn out to be a surprise hit.’’
