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 wish gold star had made clear that this was an amateur / student production. While it was enjoyable, there were the kind of glaring missteps that would not be accepted in a professional production: missing lines, stumbling over dialogue, singers drowned out by the band. It was a forgiving audience, but as someone without a connection to the players, I'm not sure I would have paid even the 1/2 price if I'd known.
The show's running time is two hours and 30 minutes, including an intermission.
