After more than three decades, The Gershwins’ classic Porgy and Bess is back on the Great White Way and will launch its much-anticipated National Tour in San Francisco! Opening on November 10, 2013, Porgy and Bess plays the SHN Golden Gate Theatre as part of the 2013-2014 SHN Season until December 8, 2013.
Revisit the iconic Catfish Row and be captivated with the beautifully poignant tale of Porgy, a poor cripple, and of Bess, a beautiful woman who wants to break free from her disgraceful past. This breathtaking new staging of the beloved classic from George and Ira Gershwin features legendary songs like I Got Plenty of Nothing and Summertime.
