Now Playing Onstage in St. Paul - Week of 3/23/2014 THE GERSHWINS' PORGY AND BESS
Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, Music Theater
3/25-3/30/2014
See what Time Magazine exclaims is "A don't miss theatre event! The #1 Broadway musical of the year." Winner of the 2012 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess is hitting the road in a stunning and stirring new staging, including such legendary songs as "Summertime," "It Ain't Necessarily So," and "I Got Plenty of Nottin'." The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess features one of Broadway's most accomplished creative teams, led by Tony-nominated director Diane Paulus (Hair), Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog), and two-time Obie Award-winning composer Diedre L. Murray (Running Man), bringing George and Ira Gershwin's legendary masterwork to the stage for the first time in more than 35 years. Praised by the New Yorker as, "A great achievement!" and hailed by the Associated Press as "a gorgeous version of the Gershwin masterpiece," the classic story of The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess is set in Charleston's fabled Catfish Row, where the beautiful Bess struggles to break free from her scandalous past, and the only one who can rescue her is the courageous Porgy. Threatened by her formidable former lover Crown, and the seductive enticements of the colorful troublemaker Sportin' Life, Porgy and Bess' relationship evolves into a deep romance that triumphs as one of theater's most exhilarating love stories.

As he looked out over the crowd of people who had come to hear him, to glean hope from his boundless optimism, he told them he'd gone with God to the mountaintop; He'd seen th Promised Land and he assured the people standing before him that they would get there. In 24 hours, he would be dead--struck down by an assassin's ullet. Winner of the 2010 livier Award for New Plays and a Broadway sensation, The Mountaintop is an intimate, fictional portrait o Dr. King on the eve of his death.
