JEANETTE CHIVVIS/ THE FRUGAL FASHIONISTA
PORGY AND BESS
THE GERSHWINS’ PORGY AND BESS, winner of the 2012 Tony Award® for Best Musical Revival, will premiere at the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House in the Dallas Arts District for a limited engagement from Wednesday, December 11 through Sunday, December 22, 2013, as part of the Lexus Broadway Series. Single tickets for THE GERSHWINS’ PORGY AND BESS will go on sale Monday, October 7 at 10 a.m.
Based on DuBose Heyward's novel “Porgy” and the play of the same name, which he co-wrote with his wife Dorothy Heyward, the Broadway revival of THE GERSHWINS’ PORGY AND BESS is a stunning and stirring new staging accompanied by a lush 23-piece orchestra and includes such legendary songs as “Summertime,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” and “I Got Plenty of Nothing.” The classic story 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.
Ticket prices range from $150 to $30, with prime orchestra seats for most performances priced at $85.
