It’s not yet summertime but Porgy, Bess, Sportin’ Life, Crown, and all the unforgettable characters from Catfish Row are coming to Dallas for the 2013/14 Lexus Broadway Series. Opening on December 11, 2013, The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess has a two-week engagement at the AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Winspear Opera House until December 22, 2013.
Proclaimed as the Best Musical Revival by the 2012 Tony Awards, Diane Paulus’ all-new take on Porgy and Bess retells a classic tale set in 1930s in the Southern slum of Catfish Row on the Charleston waterfront. This stirring and stunning new staging brings the legendary masterpiece of George and Ira Gershwin back to the Broadway stage and on a widely-anticipated national tour. Porgy and Bess features beloved songs like Summertime and I Got Plenty of Nothing.
Don’t miss Porgy and Bess as it plays at the Winspear Opera House every night from Tuesday to Sunday, with scheduled matinee shows for afternoons of Saturday and Sunday.
