‘Porgy and Bess’: Watch David Alan Grier, Audra McDonald Discuss The New Play (Video)
Porgy and Bess is considered the American opera and one of the most singular pieces of theater ever produced. Now the piece has undergone a transformation of sorts at the American Repertory Theater. In the first of a two-part series looking at the production, Greater Boston’s Jared Bowen speaks with the show’s cast members Audra McDonald, Norm Lewis, David Alan Grier, and director Diane Paulus.
Despite mixed reviews at ART, the play is headed to Broadway this December. No word on if the production will be tweaked or not. But to ensure a good head start on the box office, tickets went on sale this past monday. We strongly encourage everyone to go see this play. Porgy And Bess opens Saturday, December 17 at the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York City. Buy your tickets online at ticketmaster.
