Trivia & History

Commonly referred to as a return engagement, this production of Show Boat was actually a revival. Producer Florenz Ziegfeld had fallen on hard times after a string of six flops in three years (Show Girl, Bitter Sweet, Simple Simon, Smiles, Ziegfeld Follies of 1931, and Hot-Cha!), gambling debts, and the stock market crash. In need of cash, he revived one of his most successful shows.
