In the wings of Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theater

With Artem Nazarov in the wings of Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theater

Hi Guys,

The trip to New York was very productive.

Artem Nazarov, an up-and-coming director from Moscow, arrived for a few days to see the new Broadway “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” and we had some time out with his wonderful wife and daughter.

Check out the photos with Norm Lewis (Porgy) and Suzan Lori-Parks (the writer of the reworked book of show) as we tour the backstage, and speak of how our company, Gershwin Media will bring the show to Moscow in the near future!

Gershwin Media was founded in 2011 by Southern California businesswoman and arts enthusiast Francesca Gershwin.

Francesca Gershwin (better known to many of her friends as just “Frankie”) is an Ojai native.
