"Show Boat," the cherished 1927 landmark of the American musical theater by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II, arrived at the Lyric Opera of Chicago earlier this year for an extended run. The story follows the lives of a company of theater folk and features such musical theater standards as "Old Man River" and "Can't Help Lovin' that Man." The production, directed by Francesca Zambello, stars baritone Nathan Gunn and soprano Ashley Brown.
