Grier, who is a two-time Tony nominee for his work in Race and The First, is joined in Porgy and Bess by multiple Tony winner Audra McDonald and Drama Desk nominee Norm Lewis. The musical officially opened at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theater on January 12, and will run throughout the summer. Watch the performance below:
