Showboat, Hal Prince Version
Perhaps the most influential musical of the twentieth century is, Show Boat. After three film versions, numerous Broadway and London revivals, countless tours and recordings, legendary director Harold Prince took the helm for a new Broadway production in 1994, this streamlined version became an instant hit!
Based on Edna Ferber’s bestselling novel of the same name, the musical follows the lives of the performers, stagehands, and dock workers on the Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat, over a span of nearly fifty years, from 1880 to 1927.
Show Boat tells the story of a showboat family and their struggles with gambling, race and infidelity and poverty
