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
Great fun place is Mel's Diner on Mission and 5th or, if you want a posher place, inside Westfield Mall on the top floor of Nordstrom's I think is a very nice restaurant. Or you can also go for the Food Court in the basement of the Mall if you have a group of diverse foodies.dining • Dec 03 2013 star this tip starred

This has to be the best performance of this opera I have ever seen.
It is exciting, alive, and filled with incredible pathos. The actors are all first rate.... And the production is equal to none.
I've been a member of Goldstar for years and have always been pleased with their service. This was no different. The seats were terrific.
