Thankful for my family and my teachers for inspiring me. -- See what Time Magazine exclaims is, "A don't miss theatre event! The #1 Broadway musical of the year." Winner of the 2012 TONY AWARD® FOR BEST REVIVAL OF A MUSICAL, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess is hitting the road with award-winning members of the Broadway cast in this stunning and stirring new staging. Accompanied by a lush 23-piece orchestra, this re-envisioned Broadway production includes such legendary songs as "Summertime," "It Ain't Necessarily So," and "I Got Plenty of Nothing." The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess is set in Charleston's fabled Catfish Row, where the beautiful Bess struggles to break free from her scandalous past, and the only one who can rescue her is the courageous Porgy. Threatened by her formidable former lover Crown, and the seductive enticements of the colorful troublemaker Sporting Life, Porgy and Bess' relationship evolves into a deep romance that triumphs as one of theater's most exhilarating love stories. Praised by the New Yorker as, "A great achievement!" and hailed by the Associated Press as, "a Gorgeous version of the Gershwin masterpiece," The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess is coming to you from its record-breaking engagements at the American Repertory Theater and Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre. One of Broadway's most accomplished creative teams, led by 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), have reimagined George Gershwin, DuBose and Dorothy Heyward and Ira Gershwin's legendary masterwork specifically for the musical theatre, what USA Today calls "a canny and exuberant re-affirmation of the original's enduring brilliance."
