There’s nothing more exciting than a Broadway star coming to town and it’s happening in a little over a month!
Grammy and Tony Award-winning artist Leslie Odom, Jr. will be visting Memphis March 30 for a conversation about his new book “Failing Up”. Leslie will be appearing at the Orpheum Theatre where he will discuss the personal stories from his life shared in the book that have inspired, motivated and empowered him over the years. Per the press release, a short performance with a live band will follow. Leslie won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for the role of “Aaron Burr” in Hamilton. This is a pretty exciting event for Memphis and if you’re interested in seeing Hamilton at the Orpheum in 2019, I highly recommend snagging a ticket for an opportunity to see one of the original stars in person.
You can buy tickets here and each ticket comes with a free copy of his book. Tickets are only $30 and the price MORE than pays for itself. See you at the show!
