BIG RIVER BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: July 24, 2003
Synopsis: Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of the greatest creations in American fiction. This tale of adventure and self-discovery begins on a raft on the Mississippi River in the 1840s, where Huck, escaping from his drunken father, meets up with Jim, a runaway slave. The story of their journey downstream is an American classic that captures the rhythms, sounds and spirit of life on the big river. The musical numbers include "Do You Want to Go To Heaven," "Waiting for the Light To Shine," "Hand for the Hog," "Muddy Water," "When the Sun Goes Down in the South" and "Worlds Apart."
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"The music doesn't end when the band stops playing.
There comes a moment in the inventive new revival of ''Big River,'' the 1985 musical based on ''The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,'' when the twanging country tones of Roger Miller's score go still in the middle of a production number, and the stage is filled with an uncompromising silence. Yet the entire cast is still singing, expressively and expansively. What's more, you can hear the voices, though your ears have nothing to do with the experience. And the melody doesn't just linger; it seems to keep swelling."
