Best Re-Creation of a Literary Figure 

Andrew Tarr in "Big River"

In Porthouse Theater's Big River, a musicalization of Huckleberry Finn, Andrew Tarr, who is in his early 20s, was easily able to call up a huge dose of adolescent sexuality. His Huck was a boy/man perched between the recklessness of youth and the sensitivity of young adulthood. Tarr did a lot more than CliffsNotes to make us understand the peculiar charm and poignancy of literature's great American scamp.
