WBT to Present SHOW BOATWBT to Present SHOW BOAT
by BWW News Desk - Dec 30, 2015

†Show Boat, the first great serious Broadway musical, combined the talents of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II. The story, which spans almost fifty years, follows the lives, loves, and losses of a troupe of riverboat performers aboard the Cotton Blossom floating theater on the mighty†Mississippi.† Its timeless score contains some of the most beautiful and emotionally charged songs ever written for a musical, including†'Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man' and 'Make Believe.' "Ol' Man River", is the show's most memorable anthem about how the mighty Mississippi River, that unstoppable force of nature, is completely indifferent to human suffering. (more...)

One of the world's best loved musicals, based on the memoir of Maria Von Trapp; The Story of the Trapp Family Singers.
