WALKING IN MEMPHIS (article first published : 2005-08-1)

Elvis tales have become urban legend and Walking in Memphis, which runs at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway from August 9 to October 2, capitalises on The King.

Elvis has been spotted everywhere (apparently) and thereís a guy who works down at the chip shop who swears heís The King. Dwight is an Elvis look-alike and has an identity crisis but, if youíre having one, it may as well be someone dead famous! Dwight gives us the hard core facts from his fun laden 50ís style chip shop that serves everything from milkshakes to Budweisers.

Walking in Memphis immortalises not only Elvis Presley but all those who were influenced by his legacy. There is a cross section of tributes to him with the likes of ZZ Topsí Viva Las Vegas, Chris Isaakís Blue Moon, Marc Cohnís Walking in Memphis, UB40ís Canít Help Falling In Love and the Fine Young Cannibalsí Suspicious Minds.

Tickets R85 (Buy One Get One Free on Tuesday night and Sunday matinee shows). Bookings and enquiries on 031 566 3045 or e-mail gateway@barnyardtheatre.co.za
