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

In an audience full of parents with little kids, I took my mom to see Mary Poppins, and it was wonderful. Beautiful voices, creative and colorful sets, old favorite songs along with some new songs and scenes (only one of which didn't really work for me). There were also a few fun surprises. Highly recommended! (Also, for parents with small children, the Ahmanson provides booster seats.) A special thank you to Goldstar for helping me get easily accessible seats for my mother who has some difficulty getting around. They answered my request within minutes, contacted the box office, and solved a problem that I was really concerned about.
