Tuesday Tune: “Summertime” from The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess

April 30, 2013

Today’s Tuesday Tune is “Summertime” from the winner of the 2012 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, The Gershwins’ PORGY AND BESS.

Featuring such legendary songs as “Summertime,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So” and “I Got Plenty of Nothing.” The New Yorker praised The Gershwins’ PORGY AND BESS as “a great achievement!” while the Associated Press hailed it as “a gorgeous version of the Gershwin masterpiece.”

The Gershwins’ PORGY AND BESS  is set in Charleston’s fabled Catfish Row, where the beautiful Bess struggles to break free from her scandalous past, and the only one who can rescue her is the courageous Porgy. Threatened by her formidable former lover Crown, and the seductive enticements of the colorful troublemaker Sporting Life, Porgy and Bess’ relationship evolves into a deep romance that triumphs as one of theater’s most exhilarating love stories.
