A River Runs Through It

The most famous homage to the Mississippi River in musical theater might be Showboat’s “Ol’ Man River,” but it isn’t the only work to use the river as a means to discuss the unsavory aspects of our nation’s heritage. Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the 1984 musical adaptation of Mark Twain’s controversial novel. If you’re one of the slackers who’s unfamiliar with the classic, Huckleberry Finn tells the story of two runaways, the title character who seeks to avoid civilizin’ at the hands of his wards and Jim, a runaway slave traveling south in search of his family. The show features an award winning country- and bluegrass-tinged score by Roger Miller. The show takes place ***showtimes?*** in the Artisan Center Theater at Belaire Plaza, 420 East Pipeline in Hurst, and runs through March 13. Adult tickets are $18. For more information call 817-284-1200 or visit artisanct.com.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Starts: Feb. 13. Continues through March 17, 2012
