All aboard this concert production featuring Tony nominee Vanessa Williams!

Closed 8 Nov 2014

All Aboard with the New York Philharmonic!

Once an exciting and essential part of American entertainment, the river boats of the Mississippi are now a fleeting memory of times past. Show Boat gives us a vivid glimpse into the world of these floating theatres, showing the myriad stories and lives that surrounded and depended on each one. Beginning in 1887, we see three generations performers and workers as they navigate the epic tale of enduring love and racial tolerance.

Featuring the popular classic tunes from Oscar Hammerstein II's song book, including 'Ol' Man River' and 'Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man', Show Boat has been enchanting audiences since 1927, and now returns to New York with this new semi-staged production by the New York Philharmonic.

See Tony nominee Vanessa Williams, alongside recent Downton Abbey guest star Julian Ovenden and Lauren Worsham (currently playing Phoebe in the smash hit A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder) debut alongside the New York Philharmonic in this very special revival of a great American treasure!
