'Porgy and Bess' will record a two-disc cast album due out in May.

The popular revival of Porgy and Bess will get a two-disc cast recording from PS Classics. The cast led by Audra McDonald, Norm Lewis, and David Alan Grier will record the classic Gershwin tunes March 12 and 13 in anticipation of a May 8 release date. Porgy and Bess opened at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre on January 12 and will continue through September 30.

Set in Charleston’s fabled Catfish Row, Porgy and Bess follows beautiful Bess (McDonald) as she struggles to break free from her scandalous past, and the only one who can rescue her is the crippled but courageous Porgy (Lewis). The revised production of the classic Gershwin opera features tunes like "Summertime," "Bess, You Is My Woman Now," "I Got Plenty o' Nothin" and "It Ain't Necessarily So."

Directed by Hair’s Diane Paulus, the production also stars Joshua Henry, Philip Boykin, Nikki Renee Daniels, Chistopher Innvar, Bryonha Marie Parham and NaTasha Yvette Williams.
