The Gershwins' musical masterpiece Porgy and Bess is one the towering achievements of Twentieth Century American musical theatre. A bittersweet love story set in South Carolina during the Great Depression, the work features arguably one of the greatest, most beautiful and moving musical scores ever written for the stage, including such classics as Summertime, I Got Plenty o' Nothin', It Ain't Necessarily So and I Loves You, Porgy. Since its first performance on Broadway in 1935, Porgy and Bess has gone on to achieve unparalleled fame; with landmark productions across the globe. London will write a new chapter in the history of the show this autumn, with the premiere of a brand new 3million musical production specially adapted and directed by Trevor Nunn. Extensively reworked and re-orchestrated as a 2 hour 20 minute musical, to draw more deeply on the story's Southern roots and injected with renewed verve and pace, this fresh interpretation will also bring to the Savoy Theatre one of the biggest companies in the West End - including a cast of 40 and a 20-piece orchestra.
