WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

There's a hurricane blowing into the Ahmanson filled with glorious Gershwin melodies, rousing production numbers and one of theater's most unforgettable and timeless love stories. The legendary Porgy and Bess, ahead of its time in 1935, has come of age in a contemporary new adaptation deservedly celebrated with the 2012 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Catfish Row, and the livin' ain't easy for Bess, bound to one man and in love with another, while the world crumbles around them. And yet they cling to their faith and each other until they burst into those breathtaking Gershwin standards: "Summertime," "It Ain't Necessarily So," "I Got Plenty of Nothing" and more like South Pacific and Follies, this rare production captures the iconic masterwork the way it was meant to be appreciated: on the sumptuous Ahmanson stage with a magnificent 22-piece orchestra.
