MEMPHIS IS GOING TO LIVE IN YOU!
“Vista’s Moonlight season opens with powerfully sung and racially potent ‘Memphis’…Jeffrey Polk, in his Moonlight debut as director-choreographer, makes all of the show’s lively music and dance scenes pop with energy.”
Pam Kragen – San Diego Union-Tribune
|The Moonlight has opened its 41st summer season with a roof-raising production that’s on stage now through May 28 at 8 pm!|

“Its stage was on fire with the jaw-dropping vocals of the musical’s leading lady Janaya Mahealani Jones. The powerhouse R&B singer steals the show in the Tony-winning musical that opens Moonlight Stage Productions’ 2022 summer outdoor season. Jones has a big, soulful voice, charisma and a warm stage presence as Felicia, the talented 1950s nightclub singer whose dream of a radio and recording career is out of reach because of her skin color.”San Diego Union-Tribune

“Bryan Banville, who stars as the illiterate hillbilly DJ Huey, makes his oddball character endearing and frequently hilarious. He has the same weird whiny, sing-song vocal delivery as Chad Kimball, who originated the role at La Jolla Playhouse, but Banville brings a fresh rubber-bodied and slouchy energy to the part, and Huey’s songs sit in the sweet spot of Banville’s voice.”
