TheatreWorks SV's 'River' runs through Oct. 27 in MV

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley’s production of “Mark Twain’s River of Song” is slated to run through Oct. 27 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Charting a journey down the Mississippi River, the new musical shares the stories of the mighty river by one of its most famous chroniclers, author Mark Twain. Developed by Randal Myler and Dan Wheetman, creators of TheatreWorks’ “Fire on the Mountain” and the Tony Award-nominated “It Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues,” it debuted earlier this year at Milwaukee Repertory Theatre.

The music-filled voyage features guitars, banjos and harmonicas. Songs include “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child” and “Deep River Blues.”

Dan Hiatt stars as Mark Twain. The ensemble cast includes Valisia LeKae, Chic Street Man, Tony Marcus, Rondrell McCormick and co-creator Wheetman. Myler directs.

Performances are slated 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 and 7 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $30-$100.

In addition, an autism/sensory-friendly performance is scheduled 6 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets are $15.
