2012 Tony Nominees Norm Lewis and David Alan Grier Bring Fresh Life to Porgy and Bess Archetypes

Nominated as Best Actor in a Musical and Best Featured Actor in a Musical, respectively, Norm Lewis and David Alan Grier checked in with Playbill to talk about The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess. Both actors agree that the show is in a constant, if subtle, state of change from day to day as they push the boundaries of their characters, who were refined and redefined in the revised revival by musical book adapter Suzan-Lori Parks and director Diane Paulus. Fueled by research that took them back to the original "Porgy" novel — and the George Gershwin opera's original stage directions — Lewis and Grier seek to shake off stereotypes and find the truth, beauty, heartbreak and love of their emotionally damaged people.
