Livent tuners on tour

Livent Inc. will stage its first international productions of “Show Boat” and “Ragtime” in Australia next year.

“Show Boat” will inaugurate the new 2,000-seat Lyric Theater at the Sydney Harbour Casino in April. “Ragtime” will bow in Melbourne’s recently restored 2,100-seat Regent Theater in September 1998, eight months after the musical’s Broadway opening.

Both shows will be produced by Livent in association with Australia’s Mariner Theaters. Three North American companies of “Show Boat” currently are on the road in the U.S. and Canada, and “Ragtime” is now playing in Toronto and Los Angeles.
