News Release
Tuesday, February 20, 2018

HOUSTON - Mayor Sylvester Turner will join Theatre Under the Stars tonight in a walk-on role in a performance of the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis!.

Inspired by actual events, Memphis is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer ready for her big break. The musical comes alive with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love.
Mayor Turner will play the part of the choir director in the Act 1 number “Make Me Stronger." The mayor no promises about his performance, but he is being encouraged to sing along and feel the “power of the holy spirit!”

Tonight’s showtime is 7:30 at Hobby Center - Sarofim Hall.
