Broadway by the Bay always does very good regional musicals. This was classic, great music by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II. We found the singer portraying Joe to have the voice, but not the roots/empathy of the originals. Also, singer/actress cast as Magnolia has the voice, but is too mature for the role.
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
