Lobero LIVE presents Tony and Emmy award winner, Hal Holbrook in the role of a lifetime, great American humorist Mark Twain. Created in 1954, and last seen on Broadway 28 years ago, ‘Mark Twain Tonight!’ remains to this day the most enduring and admired of all one-man shows. The New York Times has raved about its lasting cultural relevance, calling it, “[a]s politically of-the-moment as Al Franken or Bill Maher, Mr. Holbrook has tailored his Mark Twain handbook of quotes and set pieces to focus on the corruption and fabrications of politicians and journalists, subjects that seem excruciatingly relevant just now.”
“A triumph! A genuine piece of theatrical history!” - New York Post
“The transformation is so complete as to be almost unsettling at times. The combination of Holbrook’s physical and vocal talents and the potency of Twain’s words is a mesmerizing thing to behold.” - Washington Post
Tickets for Mark Twain Tonight! are available now at Lobero.com and at the Lobero Box Office. Hal Holbrook’s moving performance will close out Lobero LIVE’s newest theatre subscription offering, A Series of Wits.
