11 Holiday Events & Activities In Memphis To Do With Out-Of-Town Guests

Overton Square has reclaimed its 1970s glory as Memphis’ entertainment hub with Hattiloo Theatre — the only freestanding black repertory theater in five surrounding states — a new iteration of Playhouse on the Square and its sister Circuit Playhouse, as well as independent productions at Theatreworks. This area is clearly the live theater center of the city, but also features Ballet Memphis’ new headquarters, live music stand-outs like Lafayette’s Music Room and even a four-screen cinema playing both mainstream and art-house features. And you’ll have plenty of places to go before or after a show; the Cooper/Madison intersection hums with retail and restaurant activity, and Overton Park the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and The Memphis Zoo — and its holiday Zoo Lights programs — lie just to the north.
