Picks and Pans Review: Show Boat
PBS (Fri., Oct. 27, 9 P.M. ET)
From PBS's Great Performances series, this rousing, colorful three-hour presentation of the classic Jerome Kern-Oscar Hammerstein II musical (set on an 1880s riverboat) is replete with show-stopping moments. The production has great acting, singing and dancing—and too many standout performers to name. But Richard White and Rebecca Baxter trill a wonderful "Make Believe" and PL. Brown does a mean "OP Man River."
