Photo Flash: First Look at PORGY AND BESS National Tour; St. Louis Added to Itinerary!

The National Tour of THE GERSHWINS' PORGY AND BESS, winner of the 2012 Tony Award® for Best Musical Revival, announces an additional city to their 2013-2014 touring season. The Muny in St. Louis will host the world of Catfish Row from July 8- 13, 2014. Check out a first look at the cast in action below!

The tour opened at San Francisco's Golden Gate Theatre Wednesday, Nov. 13 to critical acclaim. Rob Hurwitt of the San Francisco Chronicle exclaimed, "The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess is a triumph. Moran and Stampley vividly embody the central star-crossed lovers and proclaim their passion in an electrifying Bess, You Is My Woman Now. The silken voice of Sumayya Ali enfolds us in the glories of Summertime. Diane Paulus' bold revival has your heart beating in time with the world of Catfish Row," while Karen D'Souza of Bay Area News Group hailed it as, "A SUMPTOUS MUSICAL TREAT! From lowdown blues to sultry lullabies, this is a score to be savored. Bask in the enduring beauty of songs such as Summertime and I Got Plenty of Nothing. Nathaniel Stampley etches Porgy with majesty and grace. Alicia Hall Moran sings like an angel, especially in I Loves You, Porgy and Kingsley Leggs as Sporting Life delivers a juicy It Ain't Necessarily So. This 'Porgy' emerges as a moving tribute to the genius of the original."
