With libretto by New Dramatists alumna Deborah Brevoort, and noh music by Theatre Nohgaku artistic director Richard Emmert, Blue Moon Over Memphis is a stark and beautiful meditation on fame, loss and loneliness. A woman makes a pilgrimage to Graceland on the anniversary of Elvis’s death, but is forced to wait outside the gates. A mysterious man lets her into the Meditation Garden where Elvis is buried, and there, under the light of a blue moon, she encounters a spirit.

Theatre Nohgaku needs your support! We’re an international performance group creating new and vibrant works out of our passion for the classical noh drama of Japan. Our love of this extraordinary art form compels us to share its beauty and power with English speaking audiences through the creation and production of original English language noh plays, as well as the performance of classical works in Japanese and to host workshops and educational opportunities for the public to learn more about the world of noh.
