Following on from hugely successful run at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre, the classic musical Show Boat makes it's return to the West End after 20 years away. Tracing the lives, loves and losses of the workers and performers aboard the Cotton Blossom, a Missisippi River show boat, the musical tackles issues such as prejudice, class and love, and is an incredible portrayal of the early 20 Century in The Deep South of America. With music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Show Boat features such enduring numbers as Ol' Man River, Make Believe, and Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man. The timeless West End hit has been re-envisioned and revitalised by director Daniel Evans, bringing it to a whole new audience, so jump on board and prepared to be carried away by Show Boat. Although the New London is a modern building (clue's in the name), there's been a place of entertainment on the site since Elizabethan times. Catch it play host to one of the most romantic musicals ever written. ★★★★★ – The Guardian ★★★★★ – The Times ★★★★★ – The Telegraph ★★★★★ – The Stage Runtime: 2 hours 45 minutes, including an interval.
