It is a long opera, but if you are going to make massive cuts, don't call it "The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess". Call it "Porgy and Bess" (abridged)" or something like that. Sondheim wrote an op-ed to the NY Times complaining about that last production on Broadway complaining about it. I also understand that the highlights might be enough for many folks, since it is indeed a very long evening as written.
