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

This was a great story with fantastic sets, costumes and other production values. The singing for the most part was good but the problem I had was understanding the voices which made it extremely difficult to understand and follow the story line. The singers' diction was not very pronounced thus making it very difficult to understand the words of the song. I must admit that the lead singer had an extraordinary voice with excellent diction and I had no problem following the story line when he sang. Overall it was a great musical and I would recommend Evita to everyone.
