 Gershwin's smiling June 14, 2012 By A. Karalitzky (East Northport, NY) See All My Reviews "The production was simple, the sets basic... but the voices soar. My kids had blank looks hen I said I had tickets for P & B on Broadway but this production woke them up and showed them who and what Gershwin was. This abridged version fills the needs of the opera and was magnificent. Audra McDonald was amazing but so was everyone in the cast." Report Abuse
