Theater: New Victory Theater / 209 West 42nd Street, New York, NY, 10036

Synopsis: 

Play hooky and head down to the banks of the Mississippi with Tom, Huck, Becky and the rest of the gang when Mark Twain's beloved novel comes to life in this splendid theatrical adaption by Lookingglass Theatre co-founder Laura Eason. Loyal to Twain's original text, this production captures the glorious thrill of mischief-making, the fickleness of first love and the sinister cold shivers that linger after a graveyard adventure gone very, very wrong. The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer proves that this American classic is not just a book for boys, but a "near-perfect production" (The New York Times) to be enjoyed by anyone who's ever gone hunting for treasure.

Appropriate for ages 8 and up.

    Rachel Saltz

    March 5, 2012: The ultimate American id boy is up to his old tricks in “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” at the New Victory Theater, an amiable if slightly too well-behaved adaptation of Mark Twain’s novel, by Laura Eason.

    Pleasure mixed with Twain

    Frank Scheck

    March 5, 2012: Even Mark Twain would have liked “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” now playing at the New Victory Theater: Not only is this child-friendly rendition faithful to the text and spirit of his work, but it doesn’t whitewash the darker aspects of a tale set in 1840s Missouri.

    NY Review: 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer'

    Suzy Evans

    March 5, 2012: In the opening of Laura Eason's adaptation of Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer," the characters sweetly explain that they will tell the story for the entertainment of boys and girls. This fact is obvious from the youth-theater venue and the high percentage of young people in the audience. However, the characters add, "We hope it will not be shunned by men and women." Amazingly, Eason manages just that.
