This American classic is one of the most influential musicals of the 20th century! Show Boat follows the lives of the people aboard The Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat. Set against the backdrop of America's Deep South, this timeless musical spans three generations telling a powerful story of hope, freedom and above all, love. Show Boat celebrates the music of jazz, vaudeville and gospel with some of the most beautiful music ever written, including "Ol' Man River", "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" and "Only Make Believe."
