George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess is the greatest American Opera of the 20th Century. We reported earlier on an innovative production being staged in London. The soaring melodies of Progy and Bess along with the compellling storyline make this a classic of Opera Houses all over the world. Many people tend to forget that Porgy first appeared on Broadway in 1935. This fascinating production should be a not-to-be-missed moment on Broadway whenever it may arrive. The glorious tunes of Porgy and Bess include, "Summertime," "My Man's Gone Now," "Bess, You Is My Woman Now," "A Woman is a Sometime Thing," and "Oh Lord, I'm On My Way." WOW! What a show! If the production is a really strong one, I hope it runs for ten years!
