New York, October 20, 2011 – Adam Pascal (Rent, Aida), who’s set to replace Tony Award-nominated actor Chad Kimball in the role of radio DJ Huey Calhoun in the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis starting Tuesday, October 25, performed “The Music of My Soul” (with Montego Glover and Company) and “Memphis Lives in Me” (with Company), two soulful musical numbers from the show, before fans and press at Shubert Theatre earlier.

Memphis, which explores an interracial love affair between a white radio DJ (Pascal) and a black songstress (Glover) during the ‘50s, has music and lyrics by Bon Jovi songwriter and band member David Bryan and American playwright Joe DiPietro. The musical won the 2010 Tony Awards for Best Book, Best Score, and Best Musical.
