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.
Without a doubt Show Boat is one of, if not the most, recorded American musical. Because the show has had multiple revisions, we have listed every bit of music we could find under it's respective 'Used in' section. We are of the belief that this is the most accurate and complete song list available. Please be aware that some numbers were not used in the original production, and that many were small fragments and very easily recognized by an audience member. Also, while scene titles are not something we are in a habit of listing, they are so recognizable we felt they should be included.
