Marilyn Lightstone Reads Show Boat

Station Blog2022-9-12By: Justin Ecock

There’s no business like show business, or in this case Show Boat!

Introducing Marilyn Lightstone Reads Edna Ferber’s Show Boat, the classic story that inspired the greatest of American musicals.

Download free episodes today and get into the lives and loves of three generations of traveling performers aboard the steamboat called the Cotton Blossom on the Mississippi River.

You already know Marilyn as an actress famed for stage and screen roles, and as the author of the theatrical caper Rogues and Vagabonds, so it’ s safe to say that Marilyn can truly identify with and capture Ferber’s musical prose and delicious characters – the strong-willed heroine Magnolia, her forbidding mother Parthy, the soft-hearted Captain Andy, and perhaps the most important character of all, the commanding, mystical Mississippi river.
