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
Parked on the street at one of the DC meters (honestly, could they possibly have more consistent kinds of meters, times, payment methods, etc.). After getting a parking ticket the last time I used my iPhone App to pay (forgot to put in my boyfriend's license plate rather than mine which is the default), was careful to use his this time. But, $7.20 for an on-street parking space after 6:30 pm, give me a break. D.C., don't you want people braving the traffic to come into town and patronize evening entertainment, restaurants, etc.? Guess they just don't care.travel • Nov 20 2013 star this tip starred

Very sweet show. One-act with song, dance and a good all-lady jazz band. Maurice is almost 70 but still very spry. A moving tribute to his brother Greg and his parents, plus a nostalgic trip through old-time show biz. Interesting anecdoctes about Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Count Basie, Lena Horne and many other icons. Really enjoyed the appearances of the Manzari Brothers who I had seen in another show, and the other young tap dancing brothers from DC.

About the Ticket Supplier: Arena Stage
Arena Stage today stands as a flagship American theater. Arena Stage was one of the first not-for-profit theaters in the United States, as well as a pioneer of the regional theater movement. It was the first regional theater to transfer a production to Broadway, the first invited by the U.S. State Department to tour behind the Iron Curtain, and the first to receive a Tony Award. Taking a leadership role in extending theater’s horizons, Arena Stage has implemented groundbreaking policies and programs, promoting diversity in all aspects of theater, from theatergoing to production.
The Arena Stage legacy of world-class productions includes vast epics, charged dramas, rousing musicals, and probing profiles. From the monumental to the developmental, Arena Stage has helped build the canon of American theater. While they produce American classics, Arena Stage premieres new American plays and supported works in progress. They’ve nurtured artistic growth and engaged the community, broadening and intensifying the theatrical experience for one and all. And yet, in spite of it all, in their second half-century they see themselves as more fresh, restless and dynamic than ever.
