THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER (2001) BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: April 26, 2001
Synopsis: Scott Ellis directs The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, a new musical based on the beloved American novel by Mark Twain. Two-time Grammy Award winner Don Schlitz collaborates with playwright Ken Ludwig on the show, which is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri during the 1840's. The musical stars Joshua Park as Tom, Jim Poulos as Huck, and Kristin Bell as Becky.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"The original ''Adventures of Tom Sawyer'' is fundamentally a children's story, but it is a story viewed from the distance of adulthood by a sly and skeptical adult. In their new musical version of the novel, Ken Ludwig and Don Schlitz mean, I think, to honor this split personality. But instead of being a layered work with appeal for both children and grown-ups, the tame, middle-of-the-road show that opened on Broadway at the Minskoff Theater yesterday feels muddled and torn.
