Re-Imagining Porgy and Bess (DownBeat May 2012)

Re-Imagining Porgy and Bess – A Conversation with Diedre Murray (DownBeat, May 2012)

The new Porgy and Bess, adapted for Broadway by Suzan Lori-Parks and Diedre L. Murray and directed by Diane Paulus, is up for 10 Tonys, including Best Musical Revival, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Orchestrations. I interviewed Diedre Murray on how she and her collaborators re-imagined Gershwin’s score for 21st Century Broadway.  It’s in the May 2012 issue of DownBeat. (Click on pic to read.)
