An American Masterpiece!
This project has been made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius.
This critically acclaimed American masterpiece was revived on Broadway in 1994 and featured Tony’ Award-winning choreography by Susan Stroman. Now you can experience this powerful new version on the NSMT stage. You’ll board the Cotton Blossom, a show boat steaming up and down the Mississippi in the 1890s, where dashing men and beautiful women go to be entertained, forget their troubles, and fall in love. But under the surface there_s a darker side of gambling, racial tension, and heartache. The unforgettable score includes “Only Make Believe,” “Ol’ Man River,” and “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man.”
