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 glad to see this classic play, but didn't like the casting. Hedda was too old. Her schoolhood "friend" too young. I rather liked George, Eilbert was OK. The judge lacked gravitas. Didn't get a feel for the period which was supposed to feel updated.
Ibsen's place in modern drama is without parallel. He was a visionary, a harbinger of the modern dilemma who helped create modern theatre. His plays such as A Doll's House, Peer Gynt, and Hedda Gabler set the tone for much of what happens on today's stages. And, by employing Irish playwright Friel's 2008 adaptation, SCENA highlights these modern aspects of the play as well as celebrates another great international playwright.
The cast of Hedda Gabler includes accomplished D.C. actors Kerry Waters, Lee Ordeman, Rena Cherry Brown, Mary Suib, Eric Lucas, Danielle Davy and Jim Jorgensen.
