Edmund is a newbie novelist struggling with his first book. Sweetie is a spoiled Upper East Side teen with a major lack of motivation. The two would never have crossed paths except that Edmund decides to support himself by tutoring rich kids for the SATs. The only thing he expected from the job was a lot of cash. What he didn't expect was to find his muse. The bratty but bright Sweetie manages to inspire him, bringing his characters (literally) to life. With a fun and energetic pop score, this new musical takes on the issues that every young person coming of age will recognize -- family drama, creative angst and romantic blunders -- with a wit and wisdom that will leave you smiling.

Very well done! Really enjoyed the show and the story was very moving at times. This was the first live theater show my boyfriend has seen and he really enjoyed it too. Would recommend this show to others and I will take family to this show if they come for a visit this fall.
Mark Twain’s great American novel gets re-told by Huckleberry Finn himself in this Tony-award winning musical. Fearful of his Pap’s drunken rage, Huck fakes his own death and hightails it to the river to help his friend Jim escape from slavery. On the way, they’ll encounter kings, thieves, and angry mobs on this grand adventure through the South. Chock-full of bluegrass, blues, and country tunes by Roger Miller, Big River recounts Huck’s trials of considerable trouble and considerable joy.
