American Repertory Theater
It takes a mighty theater company to create a performance that raises eyebrows of legends like Stephen Sondheim, but that's exactly what the American Repertory Theater did last August with its refreshed, enhanced version of The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, which later moved to Broadway. Sondheim took umbrage at director Diane Paulus and Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks's tinkering with a classic, but coloring inside the lines is not something the A.R.T. excels at. The company enlists global talent to push the envelope further every season, at the main theater as well as Oberon, its cabaret-esque second stage.
