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

All 4 of us loved it! Having seen 3 other productions of "Joseph..." (starting with the first at Ford's Theater), this one deserved far better reviews than were given in the Post. We thoroughly enjoyed the choreography and the music (knew every word of each song already)...Joseph, the narrator and Elvis particularly stood out. The joyous ensemble ending only added to our feelings of happiness and we reveled in the sheer exuberance expressed by "the boy" on stage. We left with smiles on our faces and joy in our hearts. What more could you ask for? Kudos to all involved in this production!

Broadway legends Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice tell the eternal story of Joseph set to a modern pop beat. The favorite of Jacob's twelve sons, Joseph is sold by his jealous brothers into slavery in Egypt and rises to become the Pharaoh's right-hand man. An irrepressible story and score combine to make this show a theatrical experience to remember.
