WEST COAST PREMIERE
Book passage on a riverboat down the mighty Mississippi, teeming with rousing traditional songs and the poignant stories of the Big Muddy’s favorite son, Mark Twain. Told with wry humor and surprising emotion, played on a parade of guitars, banjos, and harmonicas, this music-filled journey will have you tapping your feet as it warms your heart. From the creators of TheatreWorks hits Fire on the Mountain and It Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues.
Supported in part by the Innovation & Exploration Fund, a program of National Alliance for Musical Theatre, with funding from The Alhadeff Charitable Foundation - www.namt.org
This production runs approximately 2 hours with one 15 minute intermission.
