The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (a musical)

Mark Twain's classic story comes to exuberant musical life in this Broadway adaptation of America's favorite book.

Tom matches wits with his stern Aunt Polly, falls in love with the beautiful, feisty Becky Thatcher, and goes on the adventure of his life with Becky and that irresistible renegade, Huckleberry Finn.
