This classic musical returns the West End for the first time in almost 20 years.
Set against the backdrop of America’s Deep South at the turn of the 20th century, Show Boat tells a powerful story of freedom, loyalty, and above all, love.
The show premiered on Broadway way back in 1927. This lavish new production proves that its timeless themes and peerless music remain as vital, passionate and moving as ever.
So hop on board the Cotton Blossom show boat, and be swept away by one of the most romantic musicals of all time, directed by Daniel Evans and featuring the timeless songs Ol’ Man River, Make Believe and Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man from Jerome Kern, with lyrics and book by Oscar Hammerstein II.
Show Boat, New London Theatre, 166 Drury Lane, London WC2B 5PW.
From 9 April 2016.
