HAL HOLBROOK
IN MARK TWAIN TONIGHT
The humor and sardonic wit of
Mark Twain remains relevant and
funny today through the magnificent
portrayal of Twain by movie/TV
super-star Holbrook. Holbrook won
a Tony Award for his Broadway run
of the show in 1966 followed by the
1997 CBS TV version and literally
hundreds of shows in cities large
and small since then. Mr.
Holbrook’s material is uproarious
and his ability to hold an audience
by acting is brilliant.
