Cheesy musical but entertaining nonetheless. Again, seats were too far away.

More Information


Show Boat covers one of the most dramatic eras in American history, from Reconstruction to the Roaring ‘20s. Against this panorama unfolds a saga of romance, racial tension and family survival with one of the greatest scores ever written. Songs include “Old Man River,” "Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man" and “Bill.”

This is Broadway by the Bay’s premiere production of the Hal Prince version of this classic and the show’s 80th anniversary. Show Boat is a valentine to America and show business!

Music by Jerome Kern

Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Based on the novel Show Boat by Edna Ferber
