Adapted from perhaps the most quintessentially American novel of all time, Big River brings Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to the stage in a Tony Award-winning musical (Best Musical, Best Original Score and five more) that the whole family can enjoy together. Filled with memorable bluegrass-country songs like "Muddy Water," "River in the Rain" and "Waitin' for the Light to Shine," this hit show sweeps you down the mighty Mississippi as a young ne'er-do-well by the name of Huck sets off on a series of misadventures with a runaway slave named Jim. Populated with all the unforgettable characters from Twain's beloved book and propelled by Roger Miller's original music, this production of Big River from Houston's Queensbury Theatre is a theatrical journey through pure Americana.
This show is approximately two hours and 30 minutes long, including a 15-minute intermission.
The performance includes the use of matches, herbal tobacco and live gunshots.
