Porgy & Bess

Join Charles Troy, and featured singer Cynthia Clarey — both in person and onscreen — on Wednesday, May 1 at 1:30pm. George Gershwin’s 1935 musical theatre masterpiece was a labor of love that had been gestating for years – and perhaps the bravest and most audacious musical show ever to be presented on Broadway. It triumphed over its difficult birth and a variety of issues, extraneous to its artistic merits, to achieve its present consensus stature as the great American opera.
