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

- See Catherine Zeta-Jones perform "All That Jazz" from the movie Chicago on YouTube.
Chicago opened at the 46th Street Theatre in June 1975, with a cast that included Gwen Verdon (Roxie), Chita Rivera (Velma) and Jerry Orbach (Billy). Although the show enjoyed a run of 898 performances, it was overshadowed by the popularity of A Chorus Line, which opened the same year. Chicago remained one of Broadway's most underappreciated gems until 1997, when it was revived on Broadway with choreography by Ann Reinking "in the style of Bob Fosse." This production went on to win 6 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Lighting Design, Best Choreography and Best Direction of a Musical.
