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

I suppose the show would have more meaning for those who attended strict Catholic parochial schools. I did not find it humorous, though certainly biting. At the point that the sister allowed former students to express views contrary to Catholic dogma, the play lost touch with reality; and when she started shooting them, it ceased to have any interest. The acting was okay, and the staging was imaginative all the way down to design of the program.
The Obie Award winning comedy centers around a fanatical nun who comes face to face with a quartet of her traumatized former students. The Village Voice wrote, "Sister Mary... is a hysterically funny, bitter, anguished, out-of-control moral comedy" and Newsweek called it "ferociously funny."
The show runs one hour, with an optional nightly talkback.
This event is recommended for those age 14 or older.
Directed by Joe Banno and featuring Cam Magee as Sister Mary Ignatius.
