Meet the Cast of Memphis on Tour! Quentin Earl Darrington ‘Preserves’ and ‘Protects’ as Watchful Brother Delray

The characters of the rock ‘n’ roll musical Memphis are coming to Portland's Keller Auditorium from September 11 through September 16. Broadway.com is delivering you the scoop on this story of a white radio DJ Huey Calhoun, who wants to change the world, and a black club singer who is ready for her big break. Quentin Earl Darrington plays Delray Jones, the owner of the underground, black R&B club where the action takes place. He’s also the overprotective older brother to Felicia, whose suspicions tick into overdrive once the white DJ Huey comes into his club and sets his eyes on his sister. Watch what Darrington had to say about acting as the “preserver of the black community” in Memphis, as well as how being a father in real life informs his character.
