Memphis (#3612H) Duration: 2:23:50 SRND51 TVPG-L

Winner of the 2010 Tony Award for Best New Musical, "Memphis" turns the radio dial back to the 1950s to tell the story of a white DJ named Huey Calhoun (Chad Kimball), whose love of music transcends racial lines and airwaves. His romantic interest is Felicia Farrell (Montego Glover), a young black singer whose career is on the rise, but who can't make the break out of segregated clubs on her own. When the two collaborate, her soulful sound reaches radio audiences everywhere, and the golden era of early rock & roll takes flight. But as things heat up, whether the world is really ready for their music - and their love - is put to a test. With a Tony-winning book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro ("I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change") and Tony-winning score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan, the production is directed by Christopher Ashley ("Xanadu") and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo ("Jersey Boys").

Twilight: Los Angeles (#3710H) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO TV14-VL

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles riots, GREAT PERFORMANCES presents a special encore of Anna Deavere Smith's "Twilight: Los Angeles," her one-woman/multi-voiced theater piece about the 1991 Rodney King beating, the violent aftermath of the 1992 verdict, and the lasting impact of the LA riots on America's conscience. Smith interviewed hundreds of people involved in the event and its aftermath, and virtually "becomes" some 30 real-life characters -- a Korean grocer, a Hollywood agent, LAPD captain Daryl Gates, a juror, even NRA spokesperson Charlton Heston. Recounting their stories verbatim, Smith assumes their voices and mannerisms with chameleon-like accuracy to chronicle this complex tragedy from its many cultural perspectives. Director Marc Levin weaves Smith's stage performance with news footage and interviews to create an unflinching portrait of rage, sorrow, loss, and battered hope.
