Winner of the 2012 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess hits the road in a stunning and stirring new staging, including such immortal songs as "Summertime," "It Ain't Necessarily So," and "I Got Plenty of Nothing." Praised by The New Yorker as "A great achievement!" and hailed by the Associated Press as a "Gorgeous version of the Gershwin masterpiece," the classic story is set in fabled Catfish Row, where beautiful Bess struggles to break free from her scandalous life, and her only rescuer is the courageous Porgy. Threatened by her past, Porgy and Bess' relationship evolves into a deep romance that triumphs as one of theater's most exhilarating love stories.
