Showboat’s “The Music Man” Earns LCT Recommendation

Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Showboat Majestic’s “Music Man” as a recommended production.

This classic American musical follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – this despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef.

Panelists praised the production as “delightful,” “high-energy” and “enthusiastic,” with innovative choreography and staging using the Showboat stage to its full potential.

“The Music Man” continues through September 30th. Tickets can be purchased at


Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
