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
Written, interpreted & directed by Saulo García.
As part of its 12th International Festival of Hispanic Theater, Teatro de la Luna presents Compañía Saulo García, Inc. from Colombia.
In a vacant, solitary space, we are surprised by the presence of a juggler, who not only fills the space with his antics, but insures us that no one will be alone and all will know liberty. We become immersed in his effective humor and wisdom, as, like a good trapeze artist, he invites us to jump into the unknown without a net.
In Spanish with live English dubbing.
