“A broad array of theatrical delights; rollicking dance numbers, big crowd scenes, intimate emotion, and sheer romance.” - San Francisco Chronicle
A true classic of American musical theater, this tale of life on the Mississippi from the 1880s to the 1920s is both a poignant love story and a powerful reminder of the bitter legacy of racism. The magnificent Jerome Kern-Oscar Hammerstein II score, which includes such classic songs as “Ol’ Man River,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man,” “Make Believe,” and “You Are Love” sounds glorious under the baton of music-theater maestro John DeMain.Artist Website Video Photos
