Hal Holbrook is Mark Twain tonight!

When Hal Holbrook's Mark Twain Tonight! opened Off-Broadway at New York City's 41st Theatre in 1959, it took the theatre world by storm and became an immediate hit. What started as a college honors project for aspiring actor Hal Holbrook soon became THE model for one-man theatrical performances.

Throughout his long career, Holbrook has continued to perform Mark Twain every year, including a world tour in 1985, the 150th anniversary of Mark Twain's birth, beginning in London and ending in New Delhi. He has toured the show in some part of every year since 1954, making last year the 50th consecutive year for this remarkable one-man show. Mark Twain Tonight! has become perhaps the longest running show in theater history. Holbrook adds to his Twain material nearly every year, editing and changing it to fit the times. He marked his 2000th performance on January 17th, 2004, and has mined over fifteen hours of Twain with more coming all the time. He has no set program he chooses the program as he goes along.

This is a Family Nights Out event.
