Featuring legendary songs such as “Ol’ Man River,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ dat Man,” and “Bill,” SHOW BOAT is great entertainment and an epic work of art. Spanning the years from 1880 to 1926, this lyrical masterpiece concerns the lives, loves and heartbreaks of three generations of show folk on the Mississippi River, in Chicago and New York City.
…an intensely American hybrid, celebrating vaudeville, jazz, opera, spirituals and popular song. It addresses distinctly American themes: racism against African-Americans and opposition to inter-racial marriage, especially. These themes play out aboard the Cotton Blossom, a floating theater — a showboat with its own troupe, led by Cap’n Andy. — San Jose Mercury News
Sung in English with English supertitles. Performed in two acts.
Performance timing approx. 2 hours and 20 minutes.
SHOW BOAT is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com
