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

The singing and staging was phenomenal... talk about a talented cast! The 1st half was deserving of an 8-tony recognition, the second half and the ending not so much.
The show held it's weight for most of the performance...until the ending. I'm not sure quite what happened, but it's as though the show just petered-out in the last 5 minutes. If it was meant to be an 'art-house-Indie-European-feel' ending - you know the type: where the are still heavy pressing questions left to be answered, it missed the mark dramatically. The ending wasn't edgy or artful enough to accomplish the task.
All-in-all, it was a really good show.

This is probably the best musical I've ever seen. But be careful who you go with. It was more sexually explicit than WeHo on Halloween night. It would've been quite embarrassing if I'd been there with my mother or on a first date :-)
