Abstract:

Samuel Clemens was a printer, a Mississippi River pilot, a Confederate soldier, a miner, a reporter, a lecturer, an editor, a humorist, a businessman, a publisher, a devoted husband and father, quite possibly in his time the most recognizable man in the world, and, of course, one of the greatest American writers who ever lived: Mark Twain. From novel to short story, from Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to "The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg," his works became world-renowned, and perhaps more that any other writer Twain became synonymous with the zest for life, the wit, the humor, and the colorful human portraits that are the embodiment of the American spirit. Mark Twain: A Musical Biography presents his fascinating life story, beautifully realized in this entertaining evening hailed by the critics.
