Show Boat

Tuesday 6th to Saturday 10th May 2008

Books and lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II
Based on the novel by “Show Boat” by Edna Ferber

Presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LTD

ImagePacked full of timeless classics, Show Boat concerns the lives, loves and heartbreaks of three generations of the Hawks family and their troupe of actors aboard the Cotton Blossom Floating Theatre. From the vibrant banks of the Mississippi in the 1880s to the music halls of Chicago in the Roaring Twenties, this panoramic story of romance evokes the passion and flamboyance, racial prejudice and poverty of the era. With songs including: Ol’ Man River, Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man, Life Upon the Wicked Stage, Why Do I Love You? and After The Ball, Showboat is an extravaganza of entertainment, rightly recognised as a landmark of musical theatre.
