Having seen this on Broadway several times, I was glad to see this was now available via instant streaming on another site. I have already pre-ordered the DVD and can't wait for it to arrive. The instant stream is amazing. They really did a great job filming and you truly feel like you are there in person. It's also great to see the original Huey in the cast as I saw him perform the role before he left the cast for medical reasons. It's an amazing show live and an amazing show filmed.

HASH(0xa37ad2d0) out of 5 stars Huge Memphis Fans Jan. 27 2012

My husband and I have seen Memphis on Broadway twice and absolutely love it. This filmed version is extremely well done, capturing the feel of the live performance. You will not be disappointed.

Since we live on the west coast it is not possible to go to NYC more than every 2 years. I love the ability to watch this great musical whenever we want to. The music is fabulous. The acting is great. I am not sure what more you could want for less than $20 to own.

If you have the ability make sure you go to the Shubert Theatre on Broadway and see this musical in person. You will walk away singing the songs of this great musical.

HASH(0xa37ad534) out of 5 stars Awesome Blu-Ray May 16 2012

I became interested in Memphis - the musical when I happened to stumble upon it on Netflix. I liked it, enough that when the Blu-ray became available, I ordered it knowing the superior picture and sound would be much appreciated. I was not disappointed and loved it!

First, the technical achievement of filming a live stage show and presenting it with first rate sound is exemplary. The production crew succeeded in a big way. The performances by the actors is no less commendable.

Some don't like Chad Kimball's portrayal of Huey Calhoun (somewhat based on real-life DJ, Dewey Phillips). I get that, but I find him to be authentic in a goofy Gomer Pyle sort of way. With his optimism, humor, passion for music and indifference to race (in the 1950's), he is likeable. His manerisms take some getting used to, but so what? His heart and soul is really, well, the heart and soul of the show. Being the Felicia character is black and apparently has much more going for her than Huey does - and that she falls for him after seeing his passion and doing so much to realize her dreams, it isn't so unimagineable that they are drawn to each other. Not by a long way.

Montego Glover is phenomenal. She sings the pants off every tune she attempts. "Colored Women" is a definite highlight. The supporting cast is excellent too. There are many fine performances, right down to the last ensemble member. This isn't high-brow or sophisticated musical theatre, but it is extremely entertaining if you like good music, good acting and good story telling.

I had the good fortune to see the tour of Memphis recently, and it is even better than the excellent Blu-ray recording of the Broadway cast. If you get a chance to see it in person, don't miss it. The entire cast was awesome.

HASH(0xa37ad864) out of 5 stars Addictive and Amazing on Blu-Ray Feb. 6 2012
By Randall S. Magruder - Published on

This is an uplifting and heartwarming musical with amazing music. What really blows me away is the quality of the Blu-Ray and the digital surround track that puts you IN the orchestra pit. The sounds of the horn section lighting up the rear speakers is mind-blowing. Plug this into a great home theatre system and forget the world for a couple of hours and you'll be glad you did.

I orginally saw the show on Broadway and loved every minute. When I saw it out on DVD I had to have it. The story, the music, the characters, everything is wonderful. You will want to watch it time and time again!
