The Ticket Liquidator Lowdown
  • Ticket Liquidator is a resale marketplace, not a ticket seller. Prices are set by third-party sellers and may be above or below face value.


    Ticket Liquidator is a nationwide network through which professional companies and trusted individuals resell tickets to events. This means that we don't charge your card, nor do we own, price, or ship the tickets listed for sale on our marketplace. The tickets are owned instead by hundreds of sellers who re-price their tickets based on the popularity of the event and the number of tickets available.
  • All seats are together unless stated otherwise.


    We understand that people often attend events with friends or family and want to be located near the ones they love. Therefore, although seat numbers are not listed, we guarantee that tickets purchased through Ticket Liquidator will be together unless explicitly stated otherwise (e.g. the seller advertises the tickets as being "piggybacked" or "split") or the tickets are General Admission.
  • Tickets are not guaranteed to ship immediately.


    The sellers who list tickets on our marketplace access tickets from a variety of sources - venues, fan clubs, event promoters, industry insiders, and even other ticket resellers. Some sellers may have to wait to receive tickets from their supplier due to ticket printing or distribution delays. Please note, though, that delayed delivery does not change the fact that you are guaranteed to receive your tickets by the date of the event once your order is accepted by the seller. Sellers also do their best to advertise expected delivery delays on their listings in order to help you make an informed purchase decision.
  • All sales are final.


    Tickets are time-sensitive items. Prices rise and fall over time and their value expires following the event date. This means that sellers would be taking a risk by allowing customers to return tickets that might never be resold or otherwise resold for the same value as what you paid. The ticketing industry has therefore adopted an “all sales are final” policy that disallows ticket return. If, however, you find yourself unable or unwilling to use your tickets, you can always check out our consumer seller program.

Big River Information

About the Show:

Based on the classic American story The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, Big River is a stage musical that follows a boy on his journey along the Mississippi River in the early to mid-1800s. The first productions of the show were at Cambridge Massachusetts' American Repertory Theatre and San Diego, California's La Jolla Playhouse in 1984. It opened at Broadway's Eugene O'Neill Theatre on April 25, 1985 and ran for 1,005 performances through September 20, 1987. The original cast included Daniel H. Jenkins (Billy Elliott) as Huck, Ron Richardson (Dreamgirls) as Jim, and John Goodman (TV's Roseanne) as Pap Finn. A lauded revival produced by the Roundabout Theatre Company and Deaf West Theatre, which featured both deaf and hearing actors and spoken/sung and fully signed performances, played Broadway in 2003, after which a tour made its way across the US. Get your tickets to Big River to see this iconic story told musically live on stage.

Plot Synopsis:

Huckleberry Finn is a child living in pre-Civil War era Missouri. His adopted guardians, Widow Douglas and Miss Watson, tell him he needs to become literate and read the Bible if he wants to go to heaven, but Miss Watson's slave, Jim, passes no judgment on him and predicts that he will have an eventful life. When Huck's alcoholic father ("Pap") finds him one night, he takes him back to his cabin in the woods and nearly kills him in a drunken rage. When Pap leaves the next day, Huck fakes his own death with a pig carcass and escapes.

When Huck reaches Jackson Island, he finds Jim and agrees to help him flee to the North on the Mississippi River. As they float along, they encounter a boat carrying escaped slaves back to their masters, a flooded house, and a dead body. When they sail past the mouth of the Ohio, they pick up two grifters who call themselves "The Duke" and "The King" and commandeer their raft to escape a mob that is chasing them. The men also secretly plot to sell Jim back into slavery.

Though Huck makes money with the Duke and the King (however unscrupulously), he eventually learns that they are underhanded when they sell Jim back into slavery. Huck manages to return inheritance money to a young girl, Mary Jane Wilkes, that they have stolen, and though she asks him to stay and become her friend, he resolves to free Jim yet again. Buy Big River tickets to trace Huck's journey from a naive and selfish boy to an independent, upstanding man.
