review of 'Big River' from 2012-2013 season

Since 2009 Studio Tenn has taken Middle Tennessee theatergoers on a remarkable ride. That enjoyable journey continues with a buoyant Big River.

Artistic Director Matt Logan has creatively steered the Tony Award-winning 1985 Roger Miller/William Hauptman musical adaptation of Mark Twain’s 1884 novel “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” away from any rocky theatrical shoals, trimming the sails where Hauptman’s billowed book is concerned while maintaining the essence of Twain’s story and Miller’s folk-filled score.
