The Broadway Flea Market is back in full force.
So even though Memphis has closed on Broadway, we will still be there hockadooing our wares for charity. And we are are going to be there in a BIG way on Sunday. So big in fact, WICKED is getting worried they don’t have enough cool stuff to sell, or so I hear, ok, or so I made up.
So this Sunday MEMPHIS fans is your chance to come out and get your hands on the last vestiges of MEMPHIS Broadway. The Junkyard Dog producer’s office is brimming with items most of which are ONE OF A KIND or NEVER BEFORE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC.
We are talking exclusive cast gifts-
we are talking things that hung backstage at the Shubert Theatre-
we are talking limited edition cast tshirts-
we are talking PROPS people. PROPS!!!!!
Just because I am drowning in MEMPHIS exclusive swag, I decided to sit down and make a partial list of what you might expect at the Flea this year.
Someday Record Props: used during the show- signed by Adam Pascal and Montego Glover and dated with the performance used.
Prop “Attacker” bat used during the last scene of Act One and signed by the Actors in that scene; Adam Pascal, Montego Glover, Kevin Massey, Justin Patterson, David McDonald, Andy Mills, Jamison Scott, Cody Williams. Donated by Montego Glover.
3 copies of the Dupont Beer Commercial Paper Prop. Signed by the Principals of the show. Donated by David McDonald.
Adam Pascal as “Huey” Calhoun Cavalcade poster from Act 2…still not sure I can give this one up…
Cast/Alumni/character Slider Names
Opening Night faxes from other shows opened in Fall 2009- hung backstage at the Shubert during the run of MEMPHIS. I’ve posted-noted notable celebrity autographs…though all the autographs are priceless…
(2) 1000th performance party Photo Booth posters- signed by Montego Glover
NY Jets Jersey worn and signed by Montego Glover when she sang the National Anthem at the NY Jets Game. Mark Sanchez did give her a kiss in this jersey… Donated by Montego Glover

…and sooo much more! Including MEMPHIS MYSTERY grab bags…oh yes. Get excited.
Not everything is listed here because I just couldn’t inventory it all… and I am still not sure if I am going to be bringing everything I have and maybe more stuff will come my way by Sunday…how’s that for non-committal commitment?
You’re just going to have faith, MEMPHIS fans that the goods will be good. In “Huey” we trust…
And if you come to the table, work with me, ok? I think everything we are selling is priceless and really, when you boil it down, it is for charity so if you come at me with some bargain basement offer, don’t be surprised if you hear me say, “I can’t part with it at that price,” or “come back at 5pm” and see what I say then.
We are also auctioning off a magnum of champagne signed by the alum and closing cast of MEMPHIS at the Final performance so make sure to check that out at the Grand Auction table!
Hockadoo and hope to see you Sunday!
