January 8, 1935. Elvis Aaron Presley is born to Vernon and Gladys in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi. Our 12th Musical MainStage season kicks off with a tribute to the kid who grew up to be the King, and his single-handed transformation of the music industry and pop culture. Are You Lonesome Tonight? Then put on your Blue Suede Shoes 'cause we'll be rockin' and a-rollin' all the way to Graceland.
