Come along for the adventure of a lifetime! Join Huck Finn and runaway slave Jim on a musical trip down the Mississippi River in Mark Twain’s classic tale. Along the way you’ll meet a rascally pair of river grifters, a grieving heiress and of course, Tom Sawyer. A slice of pure Americana - adventurous, humorous, perilous and mythic. Winner of 7 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
