First Night Photos: Show Boat

Daniel Evans’ Sheffield Crucible production of Broadway musical Show Boat opened to rapturous applause last night (Monday 25 April 2016) at the New London Theatre.

Evans and cast were supported by a host of VIP guests including Bryan Adams, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Ian McKellen, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Julian Ovenden, Samantha Spiro, Charlotte Randle, Martin Sherman, Ruby Wax, Ben Freeman and Richard Wilson.

Set against the backdrop of America’s Deep South at the turn of the 20th Century, Show Boat tells a powerful story of freedom, loyalty and love. Spanning 40 years, this epic musical follows the lives and loves of three generations aboard the Cotton Blossom show boat as it plies the Mississippi River and features the timeless songs Ol’ Man River, Make Believe and Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man.

Show Boat is running until 7 January 2017 at the New London Theatre.
