Hal Holbrook In “Mark Twain Tonight!”
It could be said that Hal Holbrook comes as close to the early American touring actors – Joseph Jefferson, Edwin Booth, James O’Neill – as anyone on the stage today. 2016 is the 62ND consecutive year for this remarkable one man show. Over 2256 performances of MARK TWAIN TONIGHT!, it may be the longest running show in theatre history, but it does not stop evolving. Holbrook has developed over fifteen hours of Twain selections to choose from, cutting through our chorus of opinions today with a voice soaked in humor and history as it happened over a century ago. Holbrook has aged but his Mark Twain has not. “He keeps me fired up, asking questions.” The show was developed in a Greenwich Village nightclub in 1956, landed on the Ed Sullivan show, opened off-Broadway in 1959. He has no
set program and chooses material as he goes along, so don’t miss out on a truly unique performance!
