Revised Porgy and Bess. What Next?
The Gershwin landmark opera Porgy and Bess is coming to Broadway in a revised version with the characters supposedly more fully rounded and relevant for modern audiences, and the crippled beggar Porgy walking with just a cane, not trapped in a moving cart.
Plus with a happier ending!
What next for Broadway?
Cats, but changed to be about lions? (A possible big comeback for Julie Taymor.)
A Fiddler in the Roof where they characters are less Jewish-y and aren't always dreaming of wealth?
Hairspray with stomach stapling?
A Titanic where they avert the iceberg and keep pouring the cocktails?
A Chorus Line where they all get the part?
A Urinetown where everyone just holds it in?
