In MARK TWAIN TONIGHT!, award-winning actor Hal Holbrook breathes life into the legendary author in one of the most successful one-man shows in American Theatre history. Corpus Christi audiences will have the chance to witness the historic performance when MARK TWAIN TONIGHT! comes to the American Bank Center Selena Auditorium for one performance only, Saturday, September 18 at 8 pm. Tickets, starting at $21.50 are on sale now at the American Bank Center box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone at 800-745-3000. Discounts are available for groups of 20 or more by calling 361-826-4754. This is a rescheduled performance. Tickets from the March 27, 2010 date will be honored at the door.

The idea for MARK TWAIN TONIGHT! originated from a characterization that was part of Holbrook’s college honors project. His first solo performance as Mark Twain began in 1954 at a nightclub in Greenwich Village. He first gained national television exposure after being spotted at one of his performances by Ed Sullivan. This led to an off-Broadway run followed by an engagement at the Great White Way that earned Holbrook a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play in 1966.

Now nearly 50 years later, Hal Holbrook in MARK TWAIN TONIGHT! continues to enthrall audiences. Hal Holbrook perfectly merges man and material, using Twain’s own words and wry wit to comment on contemporary American culture.

During the course of his one-man show, Holbrook reads excerpts from some of Twain’s most famous works, and offers the author’s point of view on subjects ranging from prejudice, politics, religion, and human history. As Holbrook states, “What [Twain] had to say over a hundred years ago is more powerful today.”
