March 13, 2019
FL Guide

The Gulf Coast Symphony and co-producer Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre continue their tradition of spotlighting a great American musical each year at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall at FSW. "Show Boat" will be fully staged with costumes, sets, and choreography, and performed with the full symphony orchestra. "Show Boat" follows the lives of the performers, stagehands and dock workers on the Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat, over 40 years from 1887 to 1927. Its themes include racial prejudice and tragic, enduring love. This show was the first time that serious black and white characters held the stage on Broadway together as equals. "Show Boat" gave us such classic songs as "Ol' Man River", "Make Believe", and "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man". Tickets from $29.

Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, is at 13350 FSW Pkwy., Fort Myers.
