Show Boat (Asolo Repertory Theatre)


Come aboard for a true classic of American Musical Theatre. Broadway's original masterpiece combines unforgettable songs, dazzling choreography, and a story that moves us with its humanity. Spanning the years from 1890 to 1927, Show Boat follows the lives, loves, and losses of a troupe of riverboat performers on the mighty Mississippi, while illuminating the racial and social changes that were shaping the country.

Its timeless score contains some of the most beautiful and emotionally charged songs ever written for a musical, including "Ol' Man River," "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" and "Make Believe." Don't miss this triumph of the American stage, playing through the holidays!
