Plenty o’ somethin’

A feature on Porgy and Bess, as adapted and now being performed by the Zach Scott company at the refurbished Austin Music Hall, accompanied by a nine-piece orchestra, takes a prominent place on the front page of today’s NYT arts section (byline Ralph Blumenthal). This short run of two weeks only (January 25 – February 3), with six performances remaining has, according to the local daily, experienced some acoustical problems affecting those in selected balcony seats, but it’s promised that remedies are being initiated. Dave Steakley and members of the cast are quoted extensively. The print version has two photographs; the on-line version goes it better, with the better photograph in color and a couple of audio excerpts from the production.
