More Information


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.
