The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess will arrive at the Richard Rodgers Theatre Dec. 17, prior to an official opening Jan. 12, 2012. Producers recently announced that the Broadway run will be presented as a 26-week limited engagement through June 24, 2012.
The revised staging of the four-hour folk opera, which has been contoured into a two-and-a-half-hour production, premiered at the American Repertory Theater in August under the direction of Tony Award-nominated director Diane Paulus.
Lewis and McDonald, who play Porgy and Bess, respectively, are confirmed to repeat their performances in the musical when the production makes the transfer to New York.
