The Ensemble Theatre Company presents a bold jazz interpretation of the great American musical Porgy and Bess, composed by George Gershwin, with a libretto by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin. Adapted for the Broadway stage by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog, Father Comes Home from the Wars), Porgy and Bess tells the tragic story of the love between a crippled beggar and a beautiful yet broken former cocaine addict and prostitute. Working with a live jazz ensemble, the musical features beloved songs, including “Summertime” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So.” Sponsored by Sara Miller McCune and Lee Luria. With Support from Elaine and Mike Gray • Elaine and Herbert Kendall • Debby and Peter Stalker • Dana White
Additional Support provided by Eve Bernstein • The Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival
