‘Memphis’ set for Shubert theater run

Tuner will begin previews in September

Looks like Broadway-bound tuner “Memphis” has nailed down the Shubert Theater for its fall run, with a group sales announcement indicating the show will begin previews in September.

Tuner — with music by Bon Jovi’s David Bryan, book by Joe DiPietro and lyrics by Bryan and DiPietro — played Seattle earlier this year. Storyline follows a 1950s Memphis DJ who is one of the first to play music by African-Americans.

The show now occupying the Shubert, the revival of “Blithe Spirit,” is currently selling tickets through July 19.

“Memphis” aims to begin previews Sept. 23 ahead of an Oct. 18 opening.
