Show Boat: Readings and Resources.

Thank you for sailing down this Web Project....I hope it was enjoyable as well as useful. Check back in the future....I've become somewhat obsessed with Show Boat and I'd like to update this site whenever possible. As I wave goodbye and sail away....I want to leave you with some suggestions for further readings/resources concerning Show Boat, Broadway Musical Theater, and the myth (myths) of the South.
