Hal Holbrook - Mark Twain Tonight

Hal Holbrook has been inhabiting Mark Twain on stage for more than 60 years. His legendary, spot-on characterization of the great novelist and raconteur is outstanding – a brilliant study in detail and storytelling, with commentary that could be present-day. The Washington Post declared, “The combination of Holbrook’s physical and vocal talents and the potency of Twain’s words are simply mesmerizing.” 

Holbrook is a master at engaging an audience. Laughter was loud and plentiful, but the highlight of the evening was when Holbrook, as Twain, gave us ‘Huckleberry Finn.’ Holbrook captured and translated a richness of those characters that gave me chills.
