His affection is on display in the clip below, where he joins McDonald for a very funny duet of "Summertime."
McDonald (Ragtime, Marie Christine, Master Class) co-stars with Norm Lewis (Sondheim on Sondheim, Side Show, Les Miserables) in the production that opened to critical praise Jan. 12 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre under the direction of Tony nominee Diane Paulus (Hair, Prometheus Bound).
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.
