The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess won the 2012 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Now it's going on the road with members of the Broadway cast, a 23-piece orchestra and new interpretations of legendary songs from the original Porgy and Bess, like "Summertime," "It Ain't Necessarily So," and "I Got Plenty of Nothing." Porgy and Bess debuted in 1935 as a groundbreaking opera starring an entire cast of classically trained African-American singers performing the classical, jazz and folk music of George and Ira Gershwin. Now, the stirring tale of African-American life in South Carolina's fictional Catfish Row has been transformed into a modern musical by a powerhouse Broadway team: Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair), Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog), and two-time Obie Award-winning composer Diedre L. Murray (Running Man). Learn More

Interesting subject matter, alternating and sometimes combining Beethoven's later years and the present, well-played roles, perfect timing, use of technical effects unexpected in a "little" theater. LTA is any thing but typical small theater. It's a fine facility with a large stage that was used to fine effect in this production. A gorgeous long black Yamaha grand piano stole the show, played on cue throughout by a fine pianist. A memorable night at the theater, so much better than the last three shows I saw on Broadway!
The show contains brief nudity.

About the Ticket Supplier: The Little Theatre of Alexandria
Founded in 1934, The Little Theatre of Alexandria began as a small play-reading group in Old Town Alexandria under the Presidency of Miss Mary Lindsey. Full productions ensued, and in 1939 the group bought a rickety former blacksmith's shop located in Ramsey Alley, between Lee and Fairfax streets, for rehearsal space and construction of sets and costumes. Since 1934, the theatre has mounted over 300 productions.
Today, LTA is the oldest award-winning theater in the Washington metro area and one of only a few community theaters in the country with its own building and an ambitious 7-show season. Proud of their rich heritage, LTA is excited about its future. They may be a little theater, but their expectations are gigantic.
