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

I was completely disappointed. The show was boring from start to end. It was almost unbearable. I almost fell asleep. I wanted to leave. and I LOVE LOVE LOVE musicals. There wasn't a single chuckle or surprise or dramatic moment. The dialogue and story were just dull and uninteresting. On top of that it felt very amateurish. The songs were NOT entertaining at all, and that's being nice. They were poor in both their writing and performance. As I sit here and write this review I cant hum or remember the melody of even a single tune from the show -- and I saw it LAST NIGHT! The actor who played Perter pan did not sing, act or dance well. His voice made me wanna cover my ears as he sand those drab, forgettable, uninspired songs. The few moments were there music itself started to sound at least pleasant, (as the pianist and violinist were competent musicians and those instruments can create upbeat harmonious sounds) it would be accompanied and utterly ruined by the sound of some brass horn instrument (I'm not sure which horn). Any chance that a song had to be semi uplifting or passably melodic were destroyed by the inclusion of that horrible sounding instrument. I cant imagine why any composer or musician or conductor would feel that its appropriate for a "fun" theater performance. Its meant to create a somber mood at a funeral or other somber event, not a happy fantasy tale like Peter Pan. that terrible sound puts a damper on the entire production. It took its grade from a D to an F.
Take a magical voyage this holiday season to a place where dreams are born. Fly to Never Never Land with the wide-eyed Darling children. Meet mischievous Lost Boys, feisty Tiger Lily, swashbuckling pirates, spunky Tinker Bell, and the ultimate young adventurer: Peter Pan. Whether you're grown up or not, this enchanting story and its brilliant score will sprinkle your heart with fairy dust and leave you thinking lovely thoughts.
