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.
