About this show

The Hammerstein/ Kern collaboration which changed the format of music theatre, combining narrative and song into a new era moving away from the classic 'operetta' into the modern musical. All about life aboard the Cotton Blossom, and dealing with issues such as prejudice, miscegenation, and gambling, Show Boat was drama mingled with classic music in its purest form and still stands today as one of the greatest theatre pieces of all time.
