Artist o’ the Week:

 Mark Twain

OK, so Mr. Twa in isn’t actually in BEAD this week, but the musical adaptation of his masterwork Huckleberry Finn, called Big River, opens a two week run at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater Thursday night courtesy of Cardinal Stage Company. Propelled by an award-winning score from Roger Miller, Mark Twain’s classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the young Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. With its toe-tapping tunes and irresistible coming-of-age story, Big River will hook you, whether you’re 9 or 90.

Winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Music, and Best Book of a Musical.
