An Evening with Mark Twain

Clemens enthusiasts in the great state of Massachusetts are encouraged to seek out "An Evening with Mark Twain" in Newburyport. Part of a tradition of Twain impersonation/tribute shows (the most famous of which was that of Hal Holbrook) , the presentation will occur on the evenings of Friday, July 18 and Saturday, July 19.

Stage actor Michael Mauldin will portray the man himself, as he has been doing in the one-man show since 1975. Mauldin has long been a mainstay of regional theatre, particularly in the New York area, where is best known for having portrayed Iago in the Riverside Shakespeare Company's production of Othello. His performances as Twain have appeared in the past on both ABC and PBS.
