The National Tour of ‘The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess,’ winner of the 2012 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, will be making a stop at Wharton Center for Performing Arts March 18-23.
Tickets for the tour are available now and can be purchased online at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Ticket Office at Wharton Center, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
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 is set in fabled Catfish Row, where beautiful Bess struggles to break free from her scandalous life, and her only rescuer is the courageous Porgy. Threatened by her past, Porgy and Bess’ relationship evolves into a deep romance that triumphs as one of theater’s most exhilarating love stories.
The musical is sponsored by the Wharton Center for Performing Arts and is a part of Project 60/50.
