The American Repertory Theater’s production of “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” will play a limited run on Broadway, producers announced today. Previews will begin Dec. 17 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York, where the show is scheduled to open Jan. 12, 2012, and play through June 24, 2012.

The musical, which is directed by Diane Paulus and adapted by Suzan-Lori Parks and Diedre L. Murray from the 1935 opera by George and Ira Gershwin and DuBose and Dorothy Heyward, wrapped up a more than six-week run at the ART’s Loeb Drama Center on Sunday.
