Here's a special video feature from WGBH.org of The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess Revival.

The video includes some footage, along with some very interesting commentary from Audra McDonald who plays Bess, David Alan Grier, director Diane Paulus, Suzan Lori-Parks, who wrote the book adaptation, among others. They speak about the musical's controversies, adaptation changes, and more!
