Show Boat Information

The ground-breaking classic musical Show Boat sails into London’s West End for the first time in almost 20 years, direct from a hugely successful and critically acclaimed run at Sheffield’s Cruicible Theatre.

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 shows Broadway premiere in 1927 changed musical theatre forever and 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 O’l Man River, Make Believe and Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man from Jerome Kern with lyrics and book by Oscar Hammersmith.

 

Spanning 40 pivotal years in American history, this epic musical follows the lives and loves of three generations aboard a show boat as it plies the Mississippi River. One of the most romantic musicals of all time, this lavish new production is directed by Daniel Evans and features classics of musical theatre including Make Believe, Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man, and the landmark Ol’ Man River.
