Under the direction of Ted Sperling, Vanessa Williams, Julian Ovenden, Norm Lewis, Jane Alexander, Fred Willard, and Lauren Worsham star in Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II’s groundbreaking musical saga about the lives, loves, and heartbreaks of show folk on the Mississippi River. Based on a bestselling novel by Edna Ferber, Show Boat tells the 40-year story of the lives of performers, stagehands, and dock workers who are the denizens of the Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat. The New Yorker noted that the show “was a radical departure in musical storytelling, marrying spectacle with seriousness,” moving beyond the light and airy plots of previous operettas and musical comedies with its serious subjects of racial prejudice and tragic love.
