ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The Broadway musical, Memphis, is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupts when a Caucasian DJ falls for an African-American rock 'n' roll singer and puts her on the radio in the 1950s.

Jody Reynard, a cast member, returns to his hometown of Atlanta as Memphis plays at the Fabulous Fox.

He sat down with CBS Atlanta's Aaron Childers to explain a little bit about Memphis, the music and the themes that run throughout the show.

You can also check out Matt McKim, the head carpenter for the national touring production of Memphis.  He let us wander around the stage with him and told us a little bit about what it takes to move a show like this from town to town. Just click on the link for a behind the scenes look.
