Mark Twain Tonight!

Thu / Feb 11

Hal Holbrook presents his legendary one-man show as a benefit for The Actors Fund

Tickets $100.00

(*** Special $50.00 pricing for students, balcony seating ***)

In MARK TWAIN TONIGHT!, Hal Holbrook delivers one of the most acclaimed and enduring performances in the history of theater as he brings the wit and wisdom of the first great American author to life. Mr. Holbrook is the consummate, journeyman actor who has toured the world as Mark Twain for over sixty years, while brilliantly making his performance relevant to present day events. By using and honoring Mark Twain’s own words, it’s as though Twain were alive and orating today.

The show was originally created in 1954 in a Greenwich Village nightclub, where Ed Sullivan saw him and first gave Holbrook national television exposure. Ten years later, Hal Holbrook in MARK TWAIN TONIGHT! ran on Broadway, winning Holbrook the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play, and aired on CBS Television before 30 million people. The New York Times stated, “Mr. Holbrook’s material is uproarious, his ability to hold an audience by acting is brilliant,” while The Washington Post declared, “The combination of Holbrook’s physical and vocal talents and the potency of Twain’s words is a mesmerizing thing to behold.”
