Music and Lyrics by Roger Miller, Book by William Haupton BIG RIVER sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the unruly Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom. Their adventures along the way are full of humor, suspense and heart, bringing to life our favorite characters from the novel, including: the Widow Douglas and her stern sister, Miss Watson; the hilarious King and Duke; Huck’s partner in crime, Tom Sawyer, as well as their rowdy gang of pals; Huck’s drunken father, the sinister Pap Finn; and the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her trusting family. Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this lively journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana. Premiering on Broadway in 1985, BIG RIVER went on to win 8 Drama Desk Awards and 7 Tony awards including Best Musical.
