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

Painfully brilliant commentary on the meaning of love and happiness, as viewed through characters with different emotional and intellectual capacities. Some of the wittiest and most acerbic dialogue I've seen in a long time.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Thanks to director Michael Kahn's keen vision, inspired casting, skillful editing and beautiful pacing, the play positively flies. Francesca Faridany is absolutely stellar.” --Metro Weekly
- “Drama diehards should vote for this kind of nervy programming with their wallets; [Strange Interlude] is by far the most adventurous entry in the spring’s Eugene O’Neill Festival.” --The Washington Post
Running time is approximately 3 hours, 45 minutes with two intermissions.
