Trevor Nunn's West End Porgy and Bess Will Transfer to Broadway
Before Trevor Nunn's London revival of The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess has even been cast comes news that the show will definitely transfer to Broadway, although firm dates and venue are yet to be announced. The West End revival is set to begin at London's Savoy Theatre on October 25; opening night is November 9.
As I've previously reported, the Gershwin estate approved the reworking of the theatrical masterpiece that uses the 1925 source novel for a newly revised book. The $5 million production will feature a company of 40 cast members along with a 20-piece orchestra. I'll keep you posted on the all-important casting.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
