|Mark Twain's Last Stand
| Open: 05/06/10 Close: 05/30/10
In this unique take on Twain, the state of the Economy has induced the Great American Humorist to travel through time and space to offer us a way out of the Recession.
Writer/performer ALAN KITTY’s portrait of Twain comes from a knowledge and understanding of Twain’s thinking gleaned from his many books, essays, speeches, interviews, newspaper articles and letters written between 1866 and 1909. The white suit and cigar are present; but this is no retooling of the Twain stereotype. MARK TWAIN’S LAST STAND is nothing less than a twenty-first century Twain’s-eye view of the world suited to audiences of all ages.
"The most outstanding qualification I can offer the voter took a lifetime - and a little more - to achieve. I am finally perfectly suited to lead. I am dead."
