Sources said Efron hung out with the cast during intermission and gushed over female lead Montego Glover. "When Montego came over, Efron said, 'I just can't stay away from the show,' " reports a witness.
Efron also attended the show in July on the same night he and "[High School] Musical" co-star Corbin Bleu spent $2,000 at Flashdancers.
Although there are no concrete plans yet to adapt "Memphis" for the big screen, Efron isn't the only actor in the hunt. Justin Timberlake saw the show in May, about the same time director Oliver Stone checked it out.
