    A dull narrative of people's lives revolving around the operations of a show boat...Time passes, things change & I couldn't care less about any of it. What's more, for nearly 2 hours it doesn't seem to give you even 5 minutes of breathing time before it breaks out once again into an unwanted song. It was a relief when it was all finally over. 1 month 3 weeks ago
