A 5th avenue quality show in a much more intimate venue. "Jim" was outstanding as was much of the cast. Highly recommend this show. The only strange this was that we seemed to be one of the only people in the audience under the age of 65!!!...continued

Having seen "Big River" twice on broadway in NYC, we thought it was a very professional performance. The scenery was quite involved and the two lead voices were dynamic. We are considering seeing it again!

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.
