The show was beyond tremendous. Huey was incredible! I was crying by the end of the show. What a lot of talent on that stage. Momma was beyond-belief my hands down goose-bumps on the arm favorite. So, so glad we went. Want to do it all over again.

I thought the performers were great. Book was a little weak and I expected more r&b. Kind of generic Broadway style.

Memphis, was by far, one of the most exhilarating performances I have seen. The Ordway had electricity like I have never seen. It was that spectacular. Such energy and talent!!! I enjoyed it more than I can say.
