Tracey Maine Clark: Porgy and Bess
Porgy and Bess has music by George Gershwin, lyrics by his brother Ira and a book and additional lyrics by DuBose Heyward. It is based on the play Porgy, by DuBose and Dorothy Heyward. A recent Broadway revival, which shortened the four-hour opera into a two-and-a-half-hour presentation, won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Audra McDonald and Norm Lewis starred.
