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
Parents, it's wonderful if you want to expose your child to ballet, but please remember that this is -not- children's theater. It's rude and disturbs everyone around you if you spend the performance explaining to your child everything that is going on onstage.info • Nov 25 2013 star this tip starred

Mathew Bourne's latest and last trio of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet's does not disappoint. From the costumes to the liberties he takes with the classic story, Bourne's breathes fresh air into a piece reminding us that dance and classical music are to be enjoyed and are not antiques to be preserved like museum pieces. Bourne takes this classic ballet off the shelf, dusted it off and presented in a new light to a new audience who will - thanks to his brilliance - fall in love all over again with Tchaikovsky's genius.
The Ahmanson is a great venue and although not the traditional stage for ballets, it served exceptionally well for this story. The parking was convenient but be prepared to have $9 on you (preferably cash) and try to find seating in the Mezzanine level. We went on a Thursday night and traffic from Glendale was not bad. We left 45 minutes before the show and arrived with almost 20 minutes to spare.
