Based on the novel by Edna Ferber.
An epic musical revealing life behind the scenes on a show boat. Magnolia falls in love with Gaylord, a river gambler, and leaves her father's show boat to marry him in the 1880s. Years of heartbreak return her to the show boat in the 1920s.
Edna Ferber (who wrote the source novel) and composer Jerome Kern were introduced by Alexander Woollcott at the opening of Kern's Criss Cross in 1926. Ferber was not keen on the adaptation of her novel to the stage at first because most musicals were fluffy and shallow. But Kern relented, convinced that he could do something with it. She eventually agreed.See more
