I have seen P&B on stage twice before, and awhile back in the movies. They were most enjoyable. However, this current production was lackluster and boring. I felt the performers were going through the motions and not living the parts. Many...continued

Seats were in the mezzanine, but we had a clear view of the stage. It's a wonderful play and the talent and the voices on stage were wonderful. Truly enjoyable outing.

It is a very good show and outstanding voices in the cast. The subject matter is a downer, and the staging is a little slow. I recommend it as a first time experience to the show

This is the third time I have seen "Porgy and Bess" and the least memorable. Apart from the gorgeous voices of the cast, I found the changes made in script and music to add nothing to the original score and story. In the two other performances,...continued

Really enjoyed the story. Some of the voices were not that captivating compared to the performances of the recent Broadway cast. There were parts that were a little unclear of what was actually happening to where we just tuned out and literally...continued
