The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess by Robert Nesti

Posted by & filed under A. R. T. Porgy and Bess in MA, Reviews.

Phillip Boykin, surprisingly nuanced as the villainous Crown. He is electrifying in his second act confrontation with Bess where the two face-off – she challenges him in song (“What You Want With Bess?”), only to give in when he lifts her in a carnal position that Porgy could never duplicate, underscoring the differences between the two men and Bess’s conflicted nature.
