OVERLOOKED MUSIC: BIG RIVER

Big River was a 1985 musical by Roger Miller and William Hauptmann.  Based on Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the show was nominated for ten Tony Awards, winning in seven categories including best musical, best book, best score, and best featured actor in a musical.  It also received thirteen nomination for that year's Dram Desk Awards, winning in eight categories.  Actress Patti Cohenour also won for her role as Mary Jane.  The original Broadway run lasted for 1005 performances.  It has been revived several times, has been on tour, and has been staged in Australia.

Since I am a big fan of Mark Twain -- and especially of Hucklebery Finn -- and also a big fan of Roger Miller, this musical has a warm place in my heart.

So here's the original cast recording of Big River, featuring Dan H. Jenkins, Ron Richardson, John Goodman, Bob Gunton, Rene Auberjonois, John Short, Patti Cohenour, William Youmans, Peggy Harmon, and Andi Henig.

Enjoy.
