About the show
In celebration of The Dallas Opera production of Show Boat, the AT&T Performing Arts Center proudly presents Diana Sheehan sings the Jerome Kern Songbook. Considered by many to be the father of the American Musical, Kern collaborated with the greatest lyricists of his day leaving us a treasure trove of some of the most gorgeous melodies ever written. Songs include: “All the Things You Are”, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”, “A Fine Romance”, “The Way You Look Tonight” and many others. Musical direction is by James McQuillen.
