BWW Review: HUCKLEBERRY FINN'S BIG RIVER at Adventure TheatreBWW Review: HUCKLEBERRY FINN'S BIG RIVER at Adventure Theatre
by Elliot Lanes - Feb 15, 2019

The 1985 Broadway season might have been one of the weakest on record for musicals; in fact, only three shows were nominated for Best Musical at the Tony Awards that year. We had an Ellie Greenwich jukebox musical (Leader of the Pack), one of Harold Prince's big budget disasters (Grind), and a musical based on Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Big River).

by Robert Barossi - Jun 30, 2018

No matter how large the cast, some shows really rest on the shoulders of just one or maybe two characters and the actors in those roles. They are called upon to carry the show and make it a success, or not, regardless of everything else happening around them. In Lyric Theatre's current production of Freaky Friday, two powerhouse performances are well worth the price of admission, even if the rest of the production is highly uneven and often just average.
