NOTE: Big River contains instances of the hateful "n-word." The language is in the script of the musical and in Mark Twain's original novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Twain, and the Broadway creators want audiences to confront the harsh reality of the inhumanity of slavery and intolerance. Eliminating the language would make it more difficult for us to discover the insights of the story.
Join the irrepressible Huck Finn on a musical journey as he helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom. Big River is a hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming celebration of pure Americana, with a jubilant score of cajun, gospel, folk, country and blues by country music legend Roger Miller. Bring your family, bring your friends. We guarantee you a great night at the theatre!
