This is a musical about life on a Mississippi River gambling boat. The story is interesting, but the songs are incredibly beautiful. You will sing them to yourself with delight again and again and again: "Ol' Man River," "Make Believe," "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man," and "Bill." One of the performers on the boat is a mulatto woman trying to pass as white. The story revolves around her romance with a white man. Alcohol abuse and gambling addiction are problems for the characters.
