Porgy and Bess - Chicago Cast

Casting for any show is no easy feat, and when it comes to casting for a show from many decades ago that's also been turned into a movie, things get even more difficult! Fans who have seen the movie version of a show tend to associate the characters on the stage with the actors who played them in the film, regardless of whether it's a separate performance by a talented group of actors on the stage. That's why the casting director was so lucky to be able to bring such talented performers to the stage in this performance of Porgy and Bess as Audra McDonald, Norm Lewis, David Alan Grier, Joshua Henry, Phillip Boykin, Nikki Renee Daniels, Christopher Innvar, Bryonha Marie Parham, Natasha Yvette Williams, and more! This contrasts with the cast for the film of the same name that brought such talents to the screen as Dorothy Dandridge, Sidney Poitier, Sammy Davis, Jr., Diahann Carroll, Pearl Bailey, and Brock Peters! If you've been lucky enough to see the film as well, contrast the performances and you'll see just how talented these stage actors are that have taken Porgy and Bess and turned it into a production of their own! Don't miss out, get your tickets through StubHub today!


Porgy and Bess - Chicago Author

Porgy and Bess is a much beloved stage opera that premiered in the 1930's with music by the popular composer George Gershwin. The story for Porgy and Bess doesn't begin with him though, as the true author behind the work that inspired Porgy and Bess is none other than famed writer DuBose Heyward. DuBose Heyward was best known for writing such great novels and books as Jasbro Brown and Other Poems, but his most famous work would undoubtedly be his novel Porgy. Though his wife would adapt Porgy into a stage show in the 1920's after it was written, it wasn't until George Gershwin discovered the story and reached out to collaborate on a show for the stage based on the novel. Though there's controversy today over who wrote the best lyrics in the show, as many tend to credit George Gershwin with the success of Porgy and Bess given his prominence in the field of lyric writing, but supposedly "the best" lyrics were written by DuBose Heyward. But if you consider yourself a big fan of both of these figures, come and find out for yourself who you think was responsible for the best parts of the show when you head out to see Porgy and Bess play out on the stage before your eyes! Don't miss out on your chance to see Porgy and Bess when it comes to be performed on a stage near you, head to StubHub and pick up your tickets while they're still available for this popular show!
