Porgy & Bess

Porgy & Bess is going to be showing at the Savoy Theatre from the end of October. I'm really looking forward to it. I've never seen a performance of the Gershwin magnum opus in its original form and am curious to see how the standards fit together.

Over the weekend I saw Guys and Dolls, with Patrick Swayze as Nathan Detroit. It had mediocre bits and quite good bits. However, it has been so long since I've seen a musical that I found the whole experience slightly odd. Also, I spent the entire time wanting to shout "thanks for winning the Cold War" at Swayze.
