Commentaires longs: In 1981, John McGlinn urged the Houston Grand Opera to use the original 1927 orchestrations (which had recently been discovered in the Queens warehouse of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization). They hired him to construct a version as close to the 1927 version as possible at that time.

However, following year, a cache of musical theatre scripts, scores and orchestral parts were discovered in Warner Brothers' warehouse in Secaucus, NJ, including materials from the 1927 Show Boat. Because of the schedule of the production and the rights that needed to be sorted out as to who owned the material, the newly discovered materials could not be used.
