Porgy and Bess at the Richard Rogers Theater

Porgy and Bess at the Richard Rogers Theater

Renamed the Richard Rogers Theater in 1990 in honor of the great composer of Broadway musicals, the theater was originally opened in 1924 as the 46th Street Theater. In 2006 a major renovation was conducted and today the theater contains a gallery which displays historic objects from the career of Rogers.
Such spectacular hits as Anything Goes, Guys and Dolls and Damn Yankees were performed in this historic theater, and today lucky theater goers can treat themselves to a remake of one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Porgy and Bess. The classic story, written by DuBose and Dorothy Heyward was set to music by George and Ira Gershwin.  For the first time in over 35 years Porgy and Bess can be seen in all its former glory, and then some.
Guests visiting New York and staying at Shimmie Horn’s Washington Jefferson Hotel are perfectly situated to enjoy this exhilarating musical, just a few short blocks away. There are few activities as enjoyable as seeing a Broadway musical; so take advantage of your New York stay and your convenient location at the Washington Jefferson Hotel, and go see Porgy and Bess.
