About this show

Spanning the years 1880 to 1927, Show Boat is a sweeping tale of enduring love and devastating hatred, illuminating the cruelty of prejudice -- and the beauty of romance. This intimate new staging in the 276-seat MAX Theatre will feature a revised script -- incorporating material from the original 1927 version, the 1946 revival, and the 2005 Berlin Opera version --and new orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick. The production will also restore the song "Mis'ry's Comin' Round" which was cut after the very first performance.
