PHOTOS: Show Boat Opening Night

The New York Philharmonic’s semi-staged production of Kern & Hammerstein’s Show Boat launched last night. The all-star cast — with Vanessa Williams, Fred Willard, Jane Alexander, Lauren Worsham, Norm Lewis, and Julian Ovenden, among others — and Orchestra delivered riveting performances, from “Ol’ Man River” to “Can't Help Lovin’ Dat Man” to “Make Believe,” and the crowd went wild. Check out photos from opening night, and catch the show before it closes this Saturday, November 8.

WATCH: Lauren Worsham Talks (And Sings!) Show Boat

Do you know Lauren Worsham, who plays Magnolia in Show Boat Nov. 5–8? Get ready to be charmed. 

She was nominated this year for a Tony for her performance in A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. Oh, and she has a degree in Spanish Literature from Yale (obviously). 

After rehearsal yesterday, she shared her excitement about fulfilling her "lifelong dream" of performing with the Philharmonic, and even burst into a few bars of "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man." Enjoy.
