Blue Moon Over Memphis

October 15, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

$10 – $30

Blue Moon Over Memphis tells the story of one of the first global celebrities, and one of the first casualties of global celebrity, Elvis Presley.

Noh is the pathway that leads us from Elvis the “brand” to a meditation on the relationship between celebrity and humanity. Space and time bend and collapse to place us in the presence of an eloquent, complicated, beautiful soul.

Playwright Deborah Brevoort’s text forgoes the easy irony that so often characterizes our encounters with Elvis. The poetic brevity of her script and the gravity of noh, featuring a musical score by composer Richard Emmert, leave us in stunned silence, inviting us to look past the pervasive cynicism of our age to perceive a new, humane way of thinking about one of twentieth-century America’s most unforgettable figures.

Elvis will never sound quite the same again!
