Show Boat

Paper Mill Playhouse Production (1989)

Trivia & History

The overture closely follows the original 1927 overtuer (as preserved on the 1988 studio recording).

The troublesome opening line of the song "Cotton Blossom" in which the stevedores sing "Niggers all work on the Mississippi" was changed to "Colored folks work on the Mississippi".
