This was an excellent production. I saw the original on Broadway over 20 years ago and this version did it justice! The theater is very unique; older and the round and the production used that to their advantage. Wonderfully well done!

I just LOVED it!! I saw this in another theater 2 yrs ago, and This production was far better. The music and dancing was fantastic.Also buying my ticket on Goldstar saved me money. I like that.

I like the show, I like the music. This production was energetic and fun, but lagged a little and lacked some of the "heart" that this show is known for. I love the theatre, the costuming, choreography, etc. was great.

A good rollicking time. Wonderful Talent. Not so deep like To Kill a Mockingbird. I couldn't help but be reminded of how awful it was that people would own slaves.

The production was a lot of fun. The dancing and singing were great. Especially good was the actor who played Jim, the runaway slave. The staging was enormously clever. It's a theater in the round; every seat's a good seat. It was hard to...continued

We took our 6 and 8 year old and we all loved it. The theatre in the round is great -- not a bad seat. And we feel so close to the actors and they are all so friendly. You can't go wrong.

This is the second Musical that we've seen here (Pajama Game was the first), and both were wonderful.

We are especially fond of Big River, a very moving show that we saw once before at the Deaf West Theatre, in an amazing version that was...continued

Impressive vocals by Huck and Jim. I, too, saw this production on Broadway when Roger Miller was playing Mark Twain! I saw it twice out here with Deaf Theatre West, and was so impressed. This production was great, very innovative staging,...continued

Let's face it, when you are working with Huck Finn you have a great foundation from which to work and Roger (King of the Road) Miller doesn't disappoint. This is the third time I have seen "Big River" and outside of the original Broadway version,...continued

It was a very enjoyable play! The music was outstanding; particularly the character that played Jim, but they all had great voices! The theatre is kept up nicely and all the seats are good.

This was a terrific production! The venue is small and in the round. Every seat is good, with general seating. The acting, singing, dancing, costumes, and quality of the production were top-notch. It was a fun and enjoyable evening out. ...continued

One of the best shows I've ever seen. I am a season's ticket holder and I actually came back a second time. The actor who played Jim has one of the best voices I've ever heard and just listening to him brought me to tears of joy. Even my...continued

The talent and direction were very good. Lots of beautiful voices brought one of my favorite shows to life. However, on the night I attended, there seemed to be quite a few issues with the sound system/microphones, which was pretty distracting...continued

My first time at this theatre, and I was so impressed by the talent of the cast. Because it is theatre-in-the-round, there isn't a bad seat, it's first come, first served. My two kids (10 and 8) really enjoyed it. I'd come back to this theatre if...continued
