Audra McDonald, currently starring in ABC’s Private Practice and David Alan Grier, formerly of the classic sketch-comedy show In Living Color and Norm Lewis are slated to star in a revamped version of the Gershwin classic “Porgy and Bess” on Broadway.

Producers announced Wednesday that the show will begin previews on Dec. 17 at The Richard Rodgers Theatre and officially open on Jan. 12 following a pre-Broadway run at the American Repertory Theatre.

The musical looks at life in the fictitious Catfish Row in the early 1920s. It boasts such songs as “Summertime,” “Bess, You Is My Woman Now,” “I Got Plenty o’ Nothin'” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So.”
