From Atoms To Show Boats

Paul Robeson in Show Boat

When I finish studying the development of the atom bomb, with particular attention to the construction and maintenance of Los Alamos as well as the surrounding area, I think I will attempt to study the story of Show Boat from its genesis through writing the book to the play to the film and until the modern day.

I have always found it a fascinating story with an unusual structure; I love the music, too. And I esteem Edna Ferber.

for a thoroughly good discussion.)
