Created in 1927, this seminal masterpiece gave American musical theater and opera a new voice &mdash; one with powerful subject matter, astonishing musical variety, and an unmistakably American atmosphere. It&#39;s one memorable, heart-wrenching song after another : &ldquo;Ol&rsquo; Man River&rdquo;...&ldquo;Make Believe&rdquo;...&ldquo;You Are Love&rdquo;...&ldquo;Bill&rdquo;...&ldquo;Can&rsquo;t Help Lovin&rsquo; Dat Man.&rdquo;</p> Fri, 15 Jun 2012 19:24:00 +0000 WRTI Staff 3996 at http://wrti.org Lyric Opera of Chicago: Show Boat on June 16th at 1 pm
