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 could (and just may) go see this play again. It is a brilliant piece of writing: intelligent, witty, and moving. The protagonist, Arnold, who is extraordinarily well-played to the point the actor IS Arnold, will win your heart. This is a piece of theatre that is enormously entertaining and, and the same time, so very insightful as to the fact that gay people are still people, with many of the same dreams, hopes, and issues the rest of us have - plus challenges that the rest of us who are considered more mainstream do not suffer. But, sexuality aside,, Torch Song Trilogy is simply a great play, and the cast does a fabulous job with it. Do not miss it while it is here in DC, and done so well.
Torch Song Trilogy stars Brandon Uranowitz (Broadway’s Baby, It’s You) as Arnold, with Obie Award winner Gordana Rashovich (Roundabout’s The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore) as Ma and Todd Lawson (The New Group’s One Arm, Broadway’s Summer and Smoke) as Ed. The production also features Alex Mills, last seen at Studio in 2ndStage’s 2-2 Tango, as Alan and Helen Hayes Award nominee Sarah Grace Wilson (Studio’s The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie) as Laurel. Rounding out the cast are newcomer Michael Lee Brown as David and Ashleigh King (Studio 2ndStage’s The Rocky Horror Show) as Lady Blues.
This show runs three and a half hours.
