Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Adapted by Randal Myler from the book by Mark Twain.

Cast: 10m., 4w. Relive the great riverboat days of the Mississippi with Huck Finn, Tom Sawyer and Jim in this new adaptation which premiered at the Denver Center Theatre Company. The Denver Post said, "Splendid new adaptation... A remarkable job of capturing the range and spirit of Twain's novel... It should become a classic: Myler has done for Twain what some British theater companies have done for the novels of Charles Dickens." The Rocky Mountain News continues the praise, "It's genuine Americana. Twain's jokers and liars come alive in this panorama filled with tall tales." Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a folktale chock-full of outlandish episodes, as two outcasts, fleeing down the Mississippi on a makeshift raft, yield to a current that brings a new view of their society and, finally, themselves. You'll want to cheer for the bravest adventure of all when, somewhere down the river, a homeless waif that nobody wants becomes a human being with a sense of his own destiny—as a true connection with another human being is made. "A sublime folk comedy. Myler makes his work triumph as an ensemble piece... grand, caustic and poetic—and presented in such a forthright spirit that it provides a hearty entertainment." (Variety) Area staging.
