The Outer Critics Circle Honors Memphis

  • bookmark page

The show just keeps on rockin’. Memphis had another great day on Monday as it picked up 7 Outer Critics Circle nominations, more than any other musical on or Off Broadway this season. Even more exciting is that our very own Artistic Director, Christopher Ashley, got nominated for Outstanding Director!

The full list of nominations is:

  • New Broadway Musical
  • New Score
  • Director of a Musical (Christopher Ashley)
  • Choreography (Sergio Trujillo)
  • Actor in a Musical (Chad Kimball)
  • Actress in a Musical (Montego Glover)
  • Featured Actress in a Musical (Cass Morgan)

They are all thrilled with the news, and we are so proud of them. As Montego said, all of this recognition is “great news and such amazing encouragement for the show.” We couldn’t agree more.

And speaking of Chris, check out the video below for a short interview with him about the creation of Memphis. It gives a really cool behind-the-scenes look at how it all came together.

Congrats to Chris and the whole Memphis crew!
