WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Playhouse Square Foundation presents the touring production of Big River, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. This critically praised Deaf West Theatre production received an honorary Tony® Award for its cast - which features Tony Award® nominated Cleveland native Michael McElroy as "Jim". Set in 1840's rural America, Big River follows the exploits of the irrepressible Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, as they explore life along the mighty Mississippi River. Along the way they meet the uproarious King and Duke, Tom Sawyer, and Huck's father, the sinister Pap Finn. The show features music and lyrics by Grammy-award® winner Roger Miller, and includes deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing actors performing each role in a synchronized ballet of speaking and signing. Spoken English and American Sign Language (ASL) are interwoven with music, dance, and storytelling techniques from both hearing and deaf cultures into a "third language" creating a unique theatrical event -- the adventure of a lifetime!
