Mark Twain Tonight is the brainchild of Hal Holbrook and was developed during his years at Denison University. An honors project on Mark Twain gave him the idea of developing a one man show that would showcase the author’s keen observations and astute sense of humor. The Mark Twain Tonight contains snippets of the author’s outlook on a variety of subjects. From Congress and lawyers to cats and children, Holbrook presents an interesting view of some of the most common aspects of American life. Holbrook in full character embodies Mark Twain in such a manner that it becomes increasingly difficult to differentiate between the two. The script of the performance is taken from Mark Twain’s writings and also includes an excerpt from the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Mark Twain Tonight premiered at the Lock Haven State Teachers College in 1954. Since its first showing, this play has been performed by Hal Holbrook all over the world. It has also been sponsored by the State Department and has the distinction of premiering behind the Iron Curtain in 1957. The play itself has been nominated a number of times and the year 1966 not only saw it premier at Broadway but also saw Hal Holbrook win Tony Award for Best Actor. The witty content and the actor’s performance have played a major role in this play’s popularity amongst the young and the old. The fact that Holbrook’s performance is still as smooth as his first one not only speak volumes for the actor’s talent but also proves that some things definitely get better with time. Throughout its existence on the theater scene, Mark Twain Tonight has been praised by both critics and fans alike. The Washington Post noted that ‘His transformation is so complete as to be almost unsettling at times...a mesmerizing thing to behold’. Fans have simply called it a master actor at the top of his game. Anyone who wants to enjoy an evening of smart monologue being performed by an exceptionally talented individual, this is the one! The content of the play might borderline on being political and might showcase the author’s and actor’s distaste of government in general. It still reminds the audience of a simpler time when political correctness was not the order of the day and personal opinions was of far more importance than of the masses.
Hal Holbrook tickets is an excellent chance for families and friends to get together and witness one of the most prolific actors of our generation embody the thoughts of one of the most legendary authors of the twentieth century.
