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

Beautiful theater but the performance was very amateurish...some good voices in the cast (especially the manager and his girlfriend) but the young man playing Conrad could not carry a tune in a bucket. Also, the sound was very irregular with some numbers too loud and others not loud enough. This would have been OK if free or almost free high school performance, but it was not worth the ticket price - even at Goldstar prices.
With a book by Michael Stewart, lyrics by Lee Adams, and music by Charles Strouse, Bye Bye Birdie is directed by Don Petersen, produced by Melissa Jo York-Tilley, music directed by Beth Atkins, choreographed by Danica Shook and stage managed by Mary Ann Hall.
