Ambitious, Epic, Great acting, Dated, Slow

See it if You've never seen Porgy & Bess before, but don't want to commit to a full production.

Don't see it if You really want to see a full production of Porgy & Bess.

Riveting, Intense, Great singing

See it if you love Audra and Norm. Beautifully acted and sung.

Don't see it if you're looking for a fully staged production. This is very stripped down.
