This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Diane Paulus' A.R.T. Premiere of Porgy and Bess

Dear Friends,

I am glad to report that all of the Gershwin family has now approved “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” for Broadway this Fall! Tickets are on sale now!

The newest Porgy and Bess, masterfully directed by A.R.T.’s Diane Paulus and with a contemporary update to the book by Suzane Lori-Parks, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, makes for a very nicely wrought collaboration.

On the far left, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan Lori-Parks celebrates with her sister; Frankie Gershwin second from right; on the far right, Norm Lewis, Broadway actor who plays Porgy in this production and soon on the Broadway version
